Mine has an L mode as the last position on the shift column. Or does this function as a traditional L range like an auto transmission?
It is intended to act as a low range, but in essence its an over drive lock out that prevents the car from going into 6th gear under normal driving conditions and seems to essentially be programmed exactly the same as the select shift (S) automatic mode. You do not have the shifter switch or the programming for the manual mode however.
