Automatic Transaxle System
Return to Main Menu(s):
Two shift patterns are pre-stored in the control module of this transaxle.
One is the Power pattern (for more powerful performance), and the other is the Normal pattern (for improved fuel consumption and quieter operation).
The driver can select and switch to the desired pattern by using the Power/Normal select switch on the center console.
The solid lines shown in these shift patterns indicate up-shifts; the broken lines indicate down-shifts.
The reason why there is a difference between the shift points for up-shifts and down-shifts is so that up-shifts and down-shifts will not occur frequently when driving at a speed near the shift point.
When the vehicle is stopped, there is a shift to second gear in order to obtain a suitable "creeping." Then, when the accelerator pedal is depressed, the vehicle starts in first gear.
