General Information

Х You can launch the vehicle from a stop in first, second, or third gear. The system will ignore attempts to shift into a higher gear if the engine speed is too low. An audible beep will sound if an inappropriate gear is selected.

Х When coming to a stop, the transmission will downshift through the gears based on vehicle speed. When the vehicle is at a stop, first gear will be selected.

Х Starting out in second or third gear can be helpful in snow or icy conditions. To select second or third gear after the vehicle is brought to a stop, tap the shift lever rearward (+) once or twice.

Х Avoid using speed control when AutoStick is engaged because the transmission will not shift automatically.

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

Х If a downshift would cause the engine to over-speed, that shift will not occur until it is safe for the engine.

An audible beep will sound if an inappropriate gear is selected.

Х The transmission will automatically upshift when necessary to prevent engine over-speed.

Х Mostly the transmission will stay in the manually selected ratio, however: − If the system detects powertrain overheating, the transmission will revert to a special automatic shift mode and remain in that mode until the powertrain cools off.

− If the system detects a problem, it will disable the AutoStick mode and the transmission will return to the automatic mode until the problem is corrected.
