I agree turns the car into a slug.
I just wish it was possible to have the car permanently in sport mode, i hate the dreaded green monster.I've had my car for almost a week and only just tried Green mode today. Wow, does that mode suck the life out of the car or what! I'm sure the mpg goes up, but the car is a pussycat in that mode
Lot of cars have these mode selectors nowdays. (Alfa e.g. calls it D.N.A. for Dynamic-Normal-All weather) I was told by a salesman that it would be possible to have the car permanently in the sport mode, the rules for the fuel efficiency ratings require that the official rating should be done Sport mode switched on. That's why it has to be manually switched on each time you start the car...I just wish it was possible to have the car permanently in sport mode
I can understand that and I'll have to wait until I actually have my car to have a real opinion from experience, but I can see me using green mode on the turnpike maybe when cruising long distances. I absolutely cannot see me using green mode on the many twisty roads that I drive every day...cannot fathom that one!I'm probably part of the unpopular opinion, but green mode isn't half bad! I use it for cruising into work, of if I have nothing/nowhere important to be. If I need a bit of power I'll flip the car to sport, but I really enjoy seeing that im getting an extra 15km of mileage out of the tank (we get our gas subsidized through my work place, and I don't want to end up paying 1.6 euro a liter when I run out of my subsidized allotment at the end of the month).
Bloody ****, I thought we were very expensive paying what was then $1.50 Aus per litre. Currently the fuel is pretty good at $0.95 per lt Aus. even though as per price of oil, it should be way lower than even this.and I don't want to end up paying 1.6 euro a liter when I run out of my subsidized allotment at the end of the month).
