Yes, but I think it would make sense to stay in aero as long as you are above the speed that it would normally switch back to normal from aero.

Sport mode keeps the car in aero even in 0km/h
I tested it during a red light

Re: SPORT MODE....when is it used ?

Is it okay to drive around in Sport Mode all the time (instead of Drive)?

No problem at all...as long as you don't mind "pushing the button" each time you start the vehicle.

Re: SPORT MODE....when is it used ?

In addition to there being three modes, I always take off Traction Control also. I don't need some faceless robot telling me more than it needs to!

I've turned off every safety feature I can. Also, I have driven in Sport mode exclusively and it was about a 3mpg drop which I can't afford since my Hemi only gets 13.5mpg.

Re: SPORT MODE....when is it used ?

I usually engage sport mode when merging on to a highway or a road with fast moving traffic, works great!
