To all the haters ragging on the GTS I say, "I love this car!" So it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a GT2. I didn't pay an extra $10k for those features either. The D-AWD with Drift mode gives you the best of both worlds. I had my question answered today by Kia which was....How do I get it into Drift mode. The mode selector doesn't say Drift Mode anywhere. Here is the answer I got for those who want to know. START Dear Rich Thank you for contacting KIA! I have found the following information and I will paste the details: Drift Mode is an optional feature. It comes with the D-AWD version of GTS. Even when equipped with D-AWD, there is no indication of “drift mode” being activated in the cluster or center stack. To activate drift mode, perform the following: Step 1: Select Sport Mode Step 2: Turn off traction control (hold button for about 3 seconds) Step 3: Turn off stability control (hold button for about 3 seconds) There is no indication in the cluster or center display that will say “drift mode” Or, Select sport mode and press and hold the traction/stability control button for ~10 seconds. Sincerely, Koraima Mondragon Kia Motors America END So you get there just like going into launch mode except you want the shifter in manual mode to lock the gear wherever you want and manually shift gears when needed. Just my guess, but the LSD (Limited Slip Differential) and mechanical shifter are probably what makes it possible to put 100% of the traction on the rear wheels. One more thing to add that wasn't included is that in order to lock the wheels in a gear (as advertised) you would have to be in manual shift and use the paddle shifters to change gears. I hope this helps those who also bought the GTS for the same reasons I did. It's a beautiful machine.
