Can any 2009 CTS-V owners with an automatic transmission verify something for me? I've noticed that when I have the shift mode in 'manaul', i.e. shifting either with the paddle shifters or the gear selecter itself, the car will only return to 2nd gear upon coming to a stop. I thought I had read in the owners manual that the transmission should return to 1st gear when in manual mode. Please note, I'm not referring to the normal practice of the car to start in 2nd gear when in 'normal' or 'sport' mode, but rather it's inablitlity to fully downshift into 1st when coming to a stop in 'manual' mode.
