Hi, guys. Much to my surprise, I got an e-mail from Ford today, confirming that I can, indeed, switch between "D" and "S" modes with the car moving (unlike between the other modes - P, R, N and D - in which the car has to be stopped). Just wanted to post this here, in case anyone else has this question and finds this thread. Also, thanks for your help.
This is exactly what I'm thinking: it doesn't make much sense that it cannot be switched while running. But I will not risk anything, obviously; I've e-mailed Ford about this yesterday, and I'm awaiting an answer. (Something tells me, though, that I will not get an answer, but that's an entirely different matter. We'll see.) Another fair point as well. Thank you all, again, for your input. Very much appreciated.
I am aware of the manual mode, once you manually pull up or down a gear. Thanks. I also want to believe that the warning is just to avoid the "creep" when you move the selector. But hey, you never know... Let's see if I can get a definite answer on this. Thank you for your input.
I completely agree, yes. But I just thought this would be a very simple "yes" or "no" question for any PowerShift user. Besides, I cannot get in touch with any technical department during the weekend (and just got the car a few hours ago). Obviously I won't try anything until I'm 100% sure about it.
Hello, everyone. I have a very quick question about the Sport mode in the PowerShift transmission on my new Ford Mondeo (11/2012 Titatium Ecoboost 2.0 203cv Powershift), which I just picked up today: Does the car need to be stopped, in order to switch between "Drive" and "Sport"? And if not, if there any speed limit to do this? Incredibly, the Ford seller couldn't answer me this question and the owner's manual isn't clear as well: while it says that "When you select position S, a gear change may occur depending on the accelerator pedal position in relation to actual vehicle speed" - thus implying that it can, indeed, be changed while moving - it also clearly says to "Apply the brakes before moving the selector lever and keep them applied until you are ready to move off". This can be seen in the Mondeo Owner's Manual: (http://www.fordservicecontent.com/pubs/content/~WOCMND/~MGB~LEN/pdf/12MNDog2e.pdf, page 151 and 152) I'd appreciate some help. Thank you in advance.
