On the 2 L engine in sport mode does anyone else feel the steering gets tighter or the suspension tighten up ?
I have a question. I had read somewhere that you should only switch from normal to sport mode when you are stopped? Does anyone know anything about that?
It’s limited to adjusting the throttle input, steering effort and transmission shift points. The throttle “adjustment” gives you the feel of more power by allowing initial tip in to produce a non linear amount of throttle compared to normal mode. An effective trick for little programming.. The shift points are held longer and keeps the revs up for faster engine response..Thanks for the replies on this. I want to be able to switch back and forth between sport and normal modes at will. It doesn't say anything in the owners manual about not being able to switch while underway, at least from what I can find.
I do have another question; does sport mode change the engine settings in any way other than throttle settings? What about valve timing? My engine does seem to have a LOT more torque in sport mode, even when I shift in the manual gate.
