I use sports mode as economy mode.... Granny shift, save on gas (course in 6th it doesn't help). I'm waiting to have problems with the DCT though, wish I had found this forums before making my purchase. But then again it may never happen, and all cars seem to have their problem areas.

I really wanted a manual with a 6 speed and taller gearing,. I liked the dodge dart (on the freeway it seemed to operate at lower RPM"s and used a much smaller engine (1.4 liter turbo charged). But I was a bit worried since it was so new, and a dodge, and they would not budge on the price yet.

I like MFT, I really don't understand all the complaints. I checked and I have the most updated version. Are most of the complains from the previous versions?
