I meant the "discussion" with a significant other who might prefer a different setting...

I notice a HUGE difference going to sport mode. Not so much going to comfort.

Re: 2017 steering mode

Initially I liked sport steering setting. After 2-3 weeks though, it felt a little too stiff for relaxed driving and I ended up mostly using normal. I guess it depends on your mood to some extent.

Nice that it can be selected.

Re: 2017 steering mode

So what happens if you decide you like the normal steering mode, but also like the shift points of Sport mode? Is there a way to set things so that pressing the Sport mode button doesn't change the steering setting?

Re: 2017 steering mode

I'm pretty sure the Sport mode button doesn't change the steering effort. I know my steering doesn't feel like it changes when I use sport mode.

This isn't about drive train "sport mode"...it's about the steering system which also has three settings now. It's independent of the former and the settings are in the UConnect menus, if I'm not mistaken.

The engine, transmission, and steering systems are all set to their SPORT settings.

I know that. That is what I was saying, that the sport mode didn't change the steering setting from the Uconnect menu.

But perhaps we're wrong, based on what bill_de found in the users manual.

I will have to set my steering to comfort, drive around a parking lot, then turn on sport mode on the dash and drive around again to see if the steering effort increases. That should confirm this once and for all.

Traditional Sport mode (i.e. transmission) might possibly have other impacts on Steering or it's a further scale factor to the Steering Mode setting.

But I don't notice any change in steering when I enable Sport Mode Transmission like I do when I enable Sport Mode Steering.

Re: 2017 steering mode

Hmmm...interesting that they would change the steering response when putting the drive train into sport mode. I would imagine there are folks who wouldn't prefer that. LOL Like the Start/Stop, ECO and other things. heh...heh...
