  1. Thanks a lot for the information and kind help! I'm used to driving manual cars mostly and sometimes regular automatic. It's my first car with this kinda hybrid gearbox. I guess i'm gonna stay at E mode. Still it's not fully automatic, because when i'm driving in the city and have to slow down or stop i'm usually turn to Neutral and let the car ride for a while and stand on N until i have to move again. So it's kinda manual feature, i'm doing the same on manual cars.
  2. Thank you very much for the answer. But when you driving in E mode and want to switch to M on the move, does it automatically choose the right gear for appropriate speed you are in? Also are you pressing brake pedal when you have to switch from one gear to another on M mode and also from E to M?
  3. Hello, I just bought 2007 Toyota Corolla, 1.6l, 91kW benzin. It has multimode manual transmission. I have a few questions about driving this car. Let's say if i'm driving in Manual mode and if i want to switch to E mode, which is kind of automatic, can i switch while on the move? Or do i have to stop and change it then? Other thing, if i'm driving on Manual mode and want to slow down, do i have to switch to lower gear or it will do it automatically? Also, let's say if there's an intersection and i have to stop before turning how you behave in manual mode? It seems uncomfortable for me to switch to the neutral from manual, because in between you have to go through E mode with the gear shift lever. Or you just have to stop on 1 gear and use hand brake for that? I just don't want to ruin the car, so maybe someone can share their thoughts about it. Appreciate!
