2013 Acura TLX - Paddle shifters

acura

#1

Is downshifting, made easy with paddle shifting, detrimental to the transmission?


#2

No, it is not. The car’s computer will prevent you from doing something dumb. Like downshifting to too low a gear for the speed.

Thank you, Mustangman.

I liked this one. Back in 2013 not many paddle-shifted transmissions matched the revs on the downshifts. So they felt abrupt. Now, every car I test has that feature.
