Eco v Normal v Sport?
Owner of a new 2019 Adventure here, sorry if this post is a bit obvious, but I was just curious as to what "mode" most folks use? Most of my previous vehicles have been manual transmission, and the only previous automatic I owned didn't have a mode selector.
So far, in the short time I've owned the vehicle, I've found the "sport" mode the only one I like driving in. "Normal" (and probably "Eco") are fine when cruising at highway speeds, but for general around-the-town driving, I find myself putting in sport every time. Maybe it's just because I'm used to riding out gears more in a manual trans, but the other modes just seem less responsive and don't downshift as much as I'd like.
(And for what it's worth, it's not as if I'm driving aggressively either)
Aside from a likely drop in mpg, is there any downside to or reason I shouldn't just leave in sport mode if that's what I prefer?
