A6 Sport Mode

I understand that A6 Sport mode has higher shift points than D and may hold high revs longer. I've had 2 instance so far accelerating on the freeway in Sport mode (no tap shifting) when the RPM stays at around 4.2K when I back off on the accelerator. The thing is that it holds the high revs for several seconds, around 4 to 7 seconds while I work the peddle to get it to shift up. Anyone else experience this? It seems like the tranny should of shifted sooner. This is the first time I've experienced Sport mode and am not sure if this is normal.

There have been many threads on this. Completely normal. It holds the revs higher just in case you want to punch it again so you'll be right in that power band.

Agreed, but it seams to hold the high revs quite some time before shifting after backing off the accelerator. I'm doing about 70 + MPH at the time so I can't hold the accelerator unless I want to reach 90 + MPH

Love this car!

The tranny is doing what it is supposed to do in S mode. If you want to drop RPM's push it to D or tapshift up a gear.
