I would hope that is the case. Why would you bother to put a "manual mode" in a vehicle that limits the highest gear you want if it will shift out of it anyway? It makes no sense for it to do that.

I wish they offered a full manual transmission with the 3rd pedal, I hate automatics.

btw, I don't think you have to "shit" yourself, just shift to a higher gear.

For something so silly, I really got a good laugh out of that. Boys will be boys, won't we...

Re: Manual mode

How do you get it out of the manual mode?

Hold the shift lever to the right for a second or two. It will revert to D.

Re: Manual mode

I tried by accident coming off the interstate and i bumped it down to 2 when i was going over 60MPH and the car did shift down to 3 but not 2. There was a large clutch like action when it shifted down to 3 from D. By that i mean you could feel the car come out of gear but the drive number hadn't changed. The whole process was very smooth and I'm lucky it didn't redline.

You're not going to overrev one of these things. The lack of any direct mechanical connection either between the gear lever and the gearbox (which in an automatic transmission is usually a planetary gearset, not a traditional gearbox) or between the engine and transmission means it isn't going to happen.

You can blow past a rev limiter in a traditional manual transmission and blow the engine by shifting into a gear too low for your speed. Since the shift lever is directly connected to the gearbox, it HAS to take the gear you select. Since the clutch is connected to your pedal, it HAS to lock the transmission to the crank when you let off the pedal. Thus, downshift to second at 70mph in most vehicles, and PRESTO.

In the WK2, you're dealing with an automatic running through a torque converter. When you move the shift lever in manual mode, you're telling the computer what you want it to do. The computer can say "screw you, buddy, that's going to wreck my stuff but good if I obey," and just keep a higher gear if you try to select a gear that could blow the engine. Sure, you may feel a jolt as the engine revs up to where it needs to be for the selected gear, but you aren't doing irreversible damage; the computer won't let you do it.

Why not?? Who wants to bounce off the rev limiter? See my post #10.

true.
plus the manual mode is still useful for downshifting. and i think in D mode it will not upshift at redline, probably before (maybe in Sport mode it will get close to redline). So the manual mode gives you more freedom and allows you to rev it higher but should still upshit (sorry upshift )) if u hit the limiter i think.
ok, will try tonight on my way home to get a definitive answer.
