Good point, a lot of times I'll select 8th when I'm just driving around town so it's not kicking in and out of MDS in traffic.DarkSky said:On a related note, if you manually select 8th gear it will still automatically shift through all your gears but cylinder deactivation will be disabled which means it should be a bit quicker.
I preferred driving it like that when I remembered to select 8th because I could hear MDS turning on and off and the sound really grated on my nerves.Jared Balfour said:Good point, a lot of times I'll select 8th when I'm just driving around town so it's not kicking in and out of MDS in traffic.
Yes, it's kind of got a grinding sound and it's like fingernails on a chalkboard for me.Jared Balfour said:What bothers me about it is the feeling when it kicks out of 4 cylinder mode. In my old Grand Cherokee I had a tuner and disabled it.
yeah they did a really good job with it, I couldn't tell with any of the trucks I drove.HighDesertRam said:On the 2019, I can't tell when it switches from 8cyl to 4 and back. It is pretty darn seamless.
