    Paddle Shifting by Mistake

    What happens when you are in normal driving mode and you hit the paddle shifter by mistake? I do this frequently out of habit due to the placement of my oldvehicle’s functions. I even hit them by mistake when reaching for the heatedsteering wheel. I will stop over time.

    Justthe other day I did this dumb mistake and it instantly revved up on me. I think I had to slow down and place in park just to put it back in normal mode. Though other times it was a smooth transition and went back to normal mode after a few seconds. Someone give me the 101 on utilizing the paddle shifters and when.

    It puts it into manual... sometimes it happens. It's not the end of the world. If you're in D, it'll go back to automatic after about 20 seconds, or you can hold the upshift paddle for a few seconds to do it yourself. If you're in S, it'll stay in manual unless you hold the upshift paddle.

    There's no need to slow down and put it into park.

    When this happens to me I just simply turn the gear selector to N and back to D and all is normal again.

    Press the 'up shift' paddle for 2 secs and it should then go back to Automatic

    You can go into the settings and select an option that only has the shift levers functional when in sport mode.
    That way bumping them during normal driving doesn't do anything.
    (At least on 2014 models)

    That's what I do, especially since the only time I want to manual shift would be in sport mode. Then it's no big deal and I can use the levers as laser beams when somebody in front of me is driving too slow, or cuts me off. Doesn't do anything, but it makes me feel better. Enjoy your ride.

    I think you can only access the option when the vehicle is in Park.

    Also, for the last few weeks I've been driving only in 'S' mode and it's great. If you're not happy with the response time of the transmission in 'D' I suggest trying 'S' out.

    Sorry was meant to ask why you find this in the menu.
