Here's a good example...it was 29° on the way in to work, normally I drive in My Mode which is Sport+ with Sport exhaust. Because the car has summer only tires, when it's dark and under 40° I use Normal mode and toggle the exhaust to sport/track. The traction control is a bit more aggressive and keeps the rear end in line (mostly). If it's raining, wet/snow mode for even more stability. Still want it to default to My Mode, but at least it's a hard switch to toggle to the different modes.

Why would you deal with something that doesn't feel right? Maybe there is an issue that can be resolved. I'm guessing you haven't reached out to Roush yet.
Have an appt with the dealer Feb 1st, I'll update after what they think.


Certainly worth a try.
I will give that a shot.

I just wish I could revert the steering back to normal or comfort even, with the throttle sensitivity going to Sport mode.

Why can't you? I switch between Normal, Sport and Track and my steering setting remains in Comfort the whole time. I thought steering settings were could be controlled independently?

With my 2015, I could. With my 2019, it says it can't.

So when you go into S with the shifter (or Sport with the button) it changes your steering setting? What happens if after you do that you hit the button to go back to Comfort steering? Does it bump you out of Sport back to Normal?

MyMode on my 19’. Drive mode = Sport, Steering = Normal, Active Exhaust = Track.
now i have to go check but im pretty sure this is how mine works. '19 GT premium PP1. ive put it in sport via shifter or sport plus via the toggle and then specifically changed the steering toggle just to see what it would do. from what i recall, it stayed in sport/sport + and also allowed me to change the steering setting.

Yes, there's dedicated steering toggle that allows to change it in any mode (21MY). The 2 things that are hardcoded to the modes are throttle maps and magneride in a sense that I cannot mix Track throttle with Sport magneride setting. Oh, and TC setting isn't saved in MyMode, it's always back on after car restart.

I'd be interested in a test sometime with a passenger in my car whose 10spd is badly shifting - I'm pretty sure that at least half the time I'm driving in Normal mode, most people not watching the dash or hearing the rev change wouldn't even know the thing shifted, because it's so smooth. Makes me wonder how much difference there is from car to car.

I find it nice for puttering around with traffic, not having it rev out all the time. Plus, any time I need to downshift, I just pull the left paddle a few times and drop a few gears and go.

But yes, the other modes are great when you're on an open road really want to unwind, and/or want manual shifting.

It says "steering mode not available", or something like that, and doesn't change it.
You cant change the steering mode if you have magneride

Yeah the toggle switch only allows change when in 'normal' (although I haven't tried it in the winter mode) :like:

Normal mode goes through 10 gears by 45 mph and they aren't linear. So, it's going to be hard to predict unless you drive with an egg shell under the gas pedal.

I can't be the only person here who finds Normal Mode in the A10 5.0 absolutely awful. I never drive in normal as I find it an insult to the Coyote. It might not bother me so much if it was called Conservation Mode and wasn't the default setting but it really is pathetic. Sport and Track mode are where the magic happens. The way the auto roars through the gears and rifles through rev matches before making a hard turn are what makes me smile. Even when driving in mellow situations normal mode feels bogged down, too quiet and just plain boring, Hell I might as well be driving a Ford Fairmont.
There is iron in your words of Normal Mode for all Coyote to see, and so there is iron in your words of Sport and Track Mode. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of MIDLYFE carries the same iron of Normal, Sport, and Track. It is good that drivers such as we meet in the struggle Modes. It shall be Sport and Track.🤠🐎
