Automatic with TAPshift?

Can someone explain to me exactly how the TAPshift feature works on the automatic?

you put the shifter to the "M" position

then you pull the corresponding button on the back of the steering wheel to either up shift or down shift.

Put the shifter into manual mode, tap the paddle on the right side to upshift, left side to downshift... there are a few more details and I may be a little off but that's how I understand it.

There is a button on the stick, with up and down arrows. I believe that there are also buttons on the back of the steering wheel. Slide it it to manual, and use these to shift. If I am wrong, forgive me.

you are wrong... i forgive you.

the "M" is at the bottom of the shifter


P
R
N
D
M


put it into D for normal driving
put it all the way down to M for Tapshift-ability

No, you are all quite mistaken. To activate tap-shift you must cycle the shifter through the P-R-N-D-M positions in a certain order. The order is secret and changes daily. Good luck.

^lol! But seriously, are there a total of four buttons on the steering wheel, so that you can up/downshift from whichever side you prefer? Also, when you go into "manual" mode, is it still 6-speed or does it go to like 4 or something?

I like the leather stitching, and the font for gear selection.

no, there's only 2 buttons total. the "+" and "-" tabs that you see when looking straight on the wheel are just to make sure you know that the right button is upshift and left is downshift.


and when you go into manual mode, you can shift thru all 6 gears.

The leather stitching is due to the inferno orange interior package.
otherwise, stitching will match your interior

Oh ok cool, thanks! Happy to hear that you can cycle thru the 6 gears cause I have a 5 speed auto atm, and it does have manual mode but it only has 4 speeds, dunno why lol.
