Re: 2015 GJ Limited slipping into paddle shifting
IIRC, when in auto auto the D will be bright, and the gear number WILL be displayed to the immediate right, but not as bright as the D. When in paddle shift mode, the gear number will be bright and the D dim.
The onboard computers will not let you paddle shift up/down if it would harm engine or transmission.
I do recall a couple of times when I was still getting used to the vehicle, accidentally touching the paddle shifter and putting it into paddle shifter mode without meaning to.
Congratulations on the new GC!
