Ah ok makes sense. Then I would have to just shift up or down manually?

Just turn your knob to sport. That way you don't have to manually shift if you don't want to. And I prefer the paddles anyways if I am going to manually do it.

And if you want to take it out of manual "paddle" you just need to pull back on the shift lever. It will put in sport auto.

Sport mode? Yes once you are in Drive simply tap the shifter backwards towards the rear of the vehicle and it will put the transmission in sport mode. Tap it back a second time and it will return you to normal driving mode

MDS? Yes, the 14s have that too

How about just holding the right paddle for a few seconds?

Lol.. guess that's why I never really experienced it. Usually leave it in auto unless I go to track or snow.. good to know. So I have a possibility of saving gas in sport.. lol

Just tried it tonight and that works also. I like pulling the shifter back versus holding the right paddle

Re: Why does MDS suck so bad?

And I thought i knew it all...!
Thanks guys, I didn't realize by selecting "sport" on the dial will eliminate the MDS and still allow the trans to shift...the "work around" I was doing by moving the shifter required paddle shifting.
I always drove my Summit in sport...will be doing the same in the SRT!
