    Re: Starting in sport mode

    I would think that is a good thing? If you have a 2013 did you have any maintenance/updates recently? I understand the 2014 stay on sport if selected and does not default back to touring next start up.

    I can confirm my 2014 stays set on sport mode once selected and does not return to touring at the next engine start.

    Removing the car's batteries would probaby return it to touring, but I have not confirmed that and have no desire to do so.

    I noticed that if you are in sport mode and then run in to a convenience store and come back out with in a few minutes it does stay in sport mode. When she sits overnight it defaults to touring mode.

    You're the lucky one. While in SM, I stop the car for a few minutes and then it restarts in TM. Bummer.

    It's like these things have a mind of their own. Maybe CUE became self aware like Skynet and decided it didn't have to do what "the man" said. LoL

    They should change the name from CUE to HAL (2001 A Space Odyssey) Substitute CUE for HAL in the quotes below.

    HAL: I've just picked up a fault in the AE35 unit. It's going to go 100% failure in 72 hours.

    HAL: I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

    HAL: It can only be attributable to human error. [Regarding the supposed failure of the parabolic antenna on the ship, which HAL himself falsified]

    Re: Starting in sport mode

    Hi Guys,

    My 2014 has been in sport mode for well over a month now, and does not revert back to TM at any time. I would bet there is a new software piece available to do this. Maybe you can ask your dealers the next time you are in for service. It seems to me that this should be very easy for them to do to your cars as well.

    Best wishes.

    I'm hoping you are correct, It is on my list of things to be done/checked next visit.

    Re: Starting in sport mode

    I'm going to be bringing my car back into the dealership most likely next week to have my clutch pedal assembly replaced (They can't stop it from squeaking), so I will definitely ask about it. I will also ask about getting those extra ponies that the 2.0T is putting out now

    Don't let them tell you the squeaking is coming from your knee. My dealer would tell me it’s coming from my wallet when I try to prey it open.
