Couple Questions about the 1-4 Shift (Skip Shift) Feature
Although i've heard of this feature before I've never owned a vehicle that was equipped with it and I'm not here to complain and vent about how much I hate it or how I want it removed, I just want to understand a few things:
1. I read in the manual that the conditions that have to be present for the skip shift to come on is coolant temperature over a certain degree, speed under 20 mph I think, and one other thing, can someone elaborate exactly?
2. If I am driving and dont notice or see the screen where it tells you to do the 1-4 shift and try to put it in 2nd gear will it physically let me shift into 2nd? So far I've noticed it every time and did the 1-4 shift.
3. Technically speaking why would a 1-4 shift be better for the car?(obviously why they put that feature in unless it is just to save gas)
