Poll for those with Automatics

Do you do most of your driving in "D"?
Do you do most of your driving in "S"?
Do you do most of your driving in "M"?

For me, I think my car responds and drives best in Sport Mode.

I am mostly driving in "S" now, however sometimes when I feel like cruising along I will keep in "D".

Most of my time is in D because it's mostly interstate. But around town I use S.

I almost never use "D". Vast majority of the time in "S". It is sooooooooooo much more responsive & fun in "S". I have used "M" only playing around with it or the couple of times I got caught out in a sudden serious snowfall.

I'm getting acquainted with the newness of the 2SS, so most of my driving is in D, however, there are conditions when I switch to M.

"D" for me... This stupid 2LS doesn't have sport mode, so Manual mode is just about useless... It reminds me more of Tow/Haul mode that trucks have.

Mostly D for regular driving, but I thoroughly enjoy S, and when I want to have more fun I use M. Some owners may feel M mode is dumb for an automatic equipped car, but I love it, and would really have to lose it.

I can't believe anyone would drive this car around in M all the time.

I guess to each his own..

I drive in D as I do a lot of city/congested driving. I'll let it go in M if I have room to play or a need to go faster. I don't want my car to think the stop and go traffic is something to implement into the M mode's shifting...if that makes any sense.
