General Information

• You can start out, from a stop, in any gear except sixth.

The system will ignore attempts to upshift at too low of a vehicle speed.

• If a ratio other than first gear is selected, and the vehicle is brought to a stop, the transmission control logic will automatically select the first gear ratio.

• Starting out in second gear is helpful in snowy or icy conditions. To select second gear after the vehicle is brought to a stop, tap the shift lever to the right (+) once.

• Avoid using speed control when AutoStick is engaged.

• The transmission will automatically shift up when maximum engine speed is reached while AutoStick is engaged.

• Transmission shifting will be more noticeable when AutoStick is engaged.

• If a downshift would cause the engine to overspeed, that shift will not occur until it is safe for the engine.

• If the system detects powertrain overheating, the transmission will revert to the automatic shift mode and remain in that mode until the powertrain cools off.
