    This isn't an automatic. It'll shift through the gears like a manual transmission. I would be surprised if the shifter didn't come with a +/- button on the right to control gear selection like a paddle shifter. You should be able to hit something like "M" which will keep the current gear unless you hit the +/-.

    That is similar to how the AMT in the older model Smart worked. The "Pure" model had a +/- shift lever position you could use if you wanted to "manually" shift and the "Passion" model had paddles on the steering wheel.

    Well, you are positioned in the F1 racing spot, like a McLaren F1. ;)

    Perfect; we'll write EM and tell them to add it to marketing "Elio, the Autocycle that give you the feel of an F1"

    Why is it a LOT of people can't indicate a BRAKE part right on a lot of forums.
    I see so many people spelling BRAKE as BREAK?

    Wife's got a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee right now. Haven't had any issues with it rolling in 'Park' [yet], but did just receive an alert/recall to bring it in to have the FI cross-over manifold checked. Apparently many were damaged during installation and crack while you're driving down the road causing an engine fire. :eek: NOT GOOD!!
