: Sports mode

Do all cts's have sports mode? I thought that was putting it in manual. I get my 09 cts DI awd this week so I'm doing my homework.

All automatic '06 and up CTS have 3 modes to the transmission.

1. Drive - You know this one. Just like any auto, it shifts for you.
2. Sport Mode - Put the shifter over to M and leave it. The transmission will still shift for you, but it holds gears longer so you're in higher RPM ranges.
3. Driver Shift Control (Manual) - Once your shifter is over in M, tap up or down to shift manually.

Thanks ! I didn't know it would shift for you when set to m. I can't wait to get her this week.
