That would be great if they issued something like that, but I've been paddle shifting mine so long that it's now pretty much a habit to pull the downshift paddle every time I shift into gear when starting the car (after selecting Custom drive mode, of course) and then every time the car comes to a full stop. Still a bit of a pain and it would be great if it didn't revert to "D" when it stops.I double checked and my gt2 still goes to D when I stop, even in sport mode. I just got the car last Thursday, but it was on the dealer lot for a few months. Hopefully they do issue a fix for it and my dealer updates it at some point.
As for the original question, I need an Option 4: "I prefer manual, but am forced to live with paddle-shifting an automatic because my wife won't drive a manual."
