I have a m6 and it’s in N. I don’t want to hold the clutch that long lol
Guess I didn’t see that! Oh well! Still, seemed weird question to ask but, 1 post made sense…not much coming out of Dodge lately.
Always remain in "D"- Can't afford the extra fuel consumption at the higher idle in "P" or "N!"I have read (decades ago) that if you are stuck in traffic you should put the car into N or P. When I got the RE, sometimes when I just hit the beginning of a long red I would pop it into N.
Last time at the dealer I asked and the tech and Serv Mgr what is best to do at a long red, both said leave it in D.
I am a hard core M guy and most of my A driving experience is with my truck, I don’t even know how the frekin’ things work.
So please let me know the pros and cons of putting it into N for the 45-60 sec of a long red.
(Edit: Orig post was missing the "6" of 60sec.)
I know. I love both cars. My Hellcat Challenger shifting during normal cruising isn’t too bad, it just shifts hard sometimes and too soon.Idk about that but charger is completely different car and platform I really like them tbh
True but the load on the engine sitting in P may burn more fuel. While driving my Acura MDX as the daily, I always throw it in neutral and coast when coming to lights or anything that has me slowing down for a bit. Then I'll throw it back in D once ready to go or proceed at the new lower speed. Having done this for many years now, I have noticed that the MDX gets about 20 mpg all around driving. Before ever doing this, it used to get about 17-18, so it must help on gas mileage some.Engine gonna idle how engine gonna idle. Leave in D
