12's can shift manually in D or M. If you accidently hit the tap shift in D, press and hold the the upshift for a few seconds and it will go back to drive.

If it can be shifted in D, why even have the M?

Glad mine works the way it does. When I have it in M then I pay more attention to the tap shifters. When it's in D I sometimes just tap to the beat of the music...

I know that the M has different, more sporty, shift points - but I agree with you 100%.

I cant imagine why they would have it not need to be in M, is it bad to switch from D to M while going down the road maybe? Some people wanted to alternate while driving, D on the highways, paddles on the side streets for instance, and moving the stick form D to M to D was bad?

Very very bad idea to have tap shift active in D. Who decided to change things at GM? Bad idea.

You can very easily accidentally hit the tap shifts when driving. It should not be active in all modes.

Break off the paddles, but in a controlled manner such that one or both isn't stuck in shift mode

2010's only works in M others work in D or M. M holds the gears longer and shifts more aggressivly shifting between D & M at any time is acceptable as well as shifting manually. The controler wont let you screw the trans up. There is no mechanical linkage for any of this its all electronic and the display will read shift denied if it does not like what you try. Read your manuals its all in there.

2011 manual

Manual Mode
Tap Shift
Back of Steering Wheel
Tap Shift allows the driver to
manually control the automatic
transmission. To use Tap Shift, the
shift lever must be in M(Manual
Mode). Vehicles with this feature
have indicators on the steering
wheel. The controls are on the
back of the steering wheel.
Tap the left control to downshift, and
the right control to upshift. A Driver
Information Center (DIC) message
indicates the gear the vehicle is in.


See
Driver Information Center (DIC)
on page 5

26.
When in Tap Shift mode with a
V8 model, the driver can exit
Tap Shift by holding the right
(upshift) control for two seconds.
The transmission will return to
automatic shifting.
On V8 models, the driver may
choose to briefly enter Tap Shift
mode while in D (Drive). Tapping
either the upshift or downshift
control will place the transmission
in Tap Shift mode. The driver may
then exit Tap Shift mode by holding
the upshift control for two seconds.
The system will return to automatic
shifting after 10 seconds of cruising
at a steady speed, or when the
vehicle comes to a stop.
While using the Tap Shift feature,
the vehicle will have firmer,
quicker shifting for increased
performance. The driver may
use this for sport driving or when
climbing or descending hills, to
stay in gear longer, or to downshift
for more power or engine braking.
The transmission will only allow
you to shift into gears appropriate
for the vehicle speed and engine
revolutions per minute (rpm). The
transmission will not automatically
shift to the next higher gear if the
engine rpm is too high. If shifting
is prevented for any reason, the
message SHIFT DENIED will
appear in the DIC, indicating that
the transmission has not shifted
gears. While in the Tap Shift
mode, the transmission will not
automatically downshift on hard
acceleration

so if moving from D to M doesnt hurt anything theres zero reason to have it active in D...

And yes the HUD shows it in M1 or whatever when you do it.

First time I did it turning I thought the car was tanking, I turned and hiot the gas, and it just stuttered a little down the street.

having it active in D will intentionally swap to a more appropriate gear faster than in M mode i believe.

I like being able to shift with the paddles when in D. It helps because you can anticipate a passing maneuver and shift the tranny just before you pull out to pass. No time delay then from floor boarding and getting the auto downshift. Makes passing faster.
Anyway using the paddle in D it is just temporary, it will automatically return to D after a few seconds anyway.
