Dynamic Mode + "S"
Just took ownership of my F-Type V8 S this weekend, and I noticed something that's both strange and disturbing.
While taking a long drive this morning, I enabled Dynamic Mode at about 70 mph while then shifting the gear lever to the left, enabling "Sport Mode" while maintaining a relatively smooth 1,500 - 2,000 RPM (meaning that the transmission automatically shifted to an appropriate gear - in this case, I believe it was 7th - there's no visual indicator)
This afternoon, when returning from said long drive, when I did the same thing (also @ 70mph), as soon as I switched over to "Sport Mode", the transmission dropped me to 4th, and I was at 4,000 - 4,500 RPM. I know it was 4th, because when I tapped the right paddle shifter, it took me to 5th, then 6th, etc.
Any ideas why this suddenly changed? I needed at this point to hold down the right paddle shifter (the up shifter) for 1 second to re-enable automatic transmission mode.
Any ideas/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
