Selection of manual mode

1) Upshift indicator
2) Downshift indicator
3) Gear position indicator

When the manual mode is selected, the gear position indicator and upshift indicator and/or downshift indicator on the combination meter illuminate. The gear position indicator shows the currently selected gear in the 1st-to-6th gear range.

The upshift and downshift indicators show when a gearshift is possible. When the upshift indicator " " is on, upshifting is possible. When the downshift indicator " " is on, downshifting is possible. When both indicators are on, upshifting and downshifting are both possible. When the vehicle stops (for example, at traffic signals), the downshift indicator turns off.

Gearshifts can be performed using the shift paddle behind the steering wheel.

Selection of manual mode

To upshift to the next higher gear position, pull the shift paddle that has "+" indicated on it. To downshift to the next lower gear position, pull the shift paddle that has "-" indicated on it.

To deselect the manual mode, return the select lever to the "D" position from the "M" position.

While driving with the select lever in the "D" position, if you change gears by operating the shift paddle, the gear position indicator light illuminates and shows the current gear condition.

CAUTION Do not place or hang anything on the shift paddles. Doing so may result in accidental gear shifting.

NOTE Please read the following points carefully and bear them in mind when using the manual mode.

  •  If you attempt to shift down when the engine speed is too high, i.e., when a downshift would push the tachometer needle beyond the red zone, beeps will be emitted to warn you that the downshift is not possible.
  •  If you attempt to shift up when the vehicle speed is too low, the transmission will not respond.
  •  You can perform a skip-shift (for example, from 4th to 2nd) by operating the shift paddle twice in rapid succession.
  •  The transmission automatically selects 1st gear when the vehicle stops moving.
  •  If the temperature of the transmission fluid becomes too high, the "AT OIL TEMP" warning light will illuminate.

    Immediately stop the vehicle in a safe place and let the engine idle until the warning light turns off.
