1/2/3 D gears automatic GT

I experimented today with driving with the 1/2/3 gears (& O/D off) on my 07 auto GT. and WOW!! I was blown away. Even with turning the O/D off and driving on normal "D" gear is nothing like it. It pulls ALOT harder.....although ill admit I probably won't do it much because I don't know what kind of affect it will have on her Does anybody up here drive daily with that style?

It shouldn't have anymore pull of anything because all your really doing is requesting for the transmission to shift. Your not actually doing any mechanical shifting like the old days. But you can't hurt anything but your mpg. For example, your car will not let you downshift into 1st if going above around 30mph. It only shifts if it knows it will be safe

Your transmission can shift better than you can, I promise. Been through this in my own cars before and numbers don't lie.
