You slide the shifter to the left when in DRIVE and can nudge it forward for gear up or back for gear down. You can only shift within the constraints of the automatic transmissions limitations. You cannot hurt the engine by shifting at the wrong time. If a shift is denied, it will notify you with a "Shift Denied" message on the DIC. If RPMs get too low, it will still shift automatically to prevent an engine stall.. I don't believe it will automatically change gears if the RPMs get too high however.How do you use the +/- on the gear change column.Thank You
You have to pre-emptively shift up, a little early to account for the delay.it will keep you bouncing at redline if left in manual mode, i like that but it will also from time to time not let you up shift at red line if your foot is still on the floor.
Hence my disclaimer about intentionally holding a gear.the cruze even if you drive it aggressively the moment you let off the gas for a turn it automatically shifts up to a cruising gear to save fuel.
I'll have to remember to watch that from home. I should upload my laughable auto-x run in my Supra that I have stored away somewhere. I can't remember what class they put my Supra in, but my buddy in his 300Z-TT and I were a joke compared to the rest of our class. It was fun to play along though.my diesel handles very well at the track for the size. the thing that absolutely kills me is the LRR tires and that the diesel is absolutely whisper quiet.... plus SCCA feels the cruze can handle its own vs a fiesta st or a mini cooper... yah both make 200hp and are gas and are lighter... wrong class people
What year are we talking about? The 2011 though 2016 Limited is first generation (round taillights). The "all new" 2016 is the second generation and is different. I'm not sure if the "all-new" is being sold yet.How do you use the +/- on the gear change column.Thank You
