    Went to the dealer yesterday, and they have a pretty good shop. The guy said to me there is no ryhme or reason for it to stay on or off. Off is the default position.

    With all the whine, vibration, and this, that you are having, I'd take your CTS in. You might have a bad tranny.

    I have no problem with the sport mode, if I set it on it stays that way until I turn it off. Doesn't matter if it sits for a day or a week.

    The problem isnt with it staying on when driving. It is when you turn the car off and then turn it back on sometimes it is still on and others it isnt. I have seen it happen and wondered about it. At first i thought i hurt something but i guess this is a normal thing and not really a problem.

    Try this. Next time you are driving hone, turn it on, but drive real easy, slow gas, no hard braking. Then park it. Next time you start it, see if it's on. I bet it's not.

    I finally saw it.
    I always have my sports mode off but when i put the key and turned my car on, i saw the sports mode light flickering and then it stayed on.

    I gave up with this on this bug (feature). Bottom line is the Sport mode doesn't hold it's memory as it says it should in the manual.
