I do that all the time in my family SUV. First I open one of the rear doors so my kids can get in, then I go to the front and open mine. I would be annoyed if the rear doors didn't have the sensor. In fact, it was one of the things I checked when I decided to buy the car.For the F-150, I can't imagine anyone using the back door handle to auto-unlock.
I drive my wife's Kuga (a.k.a. Escape) in fully manual mode all the time, because I find several aspects of its 6F35 automatic gearbox very annoying. Unfortunately the paddles weren't available when I bought it; they were introduced a year later. So I must make do with a stupid button on the gear lever. It's quite awkward, really stupid invention, but I'm willing to put up with it because driving the car in auto is even worse.who the fuck wants to paddle shift an escape?
I checked again today and it definitely works with both the stock and Whipple calibrations. If in sport, once you go wot it makes every attempt to keep the engine in the power. I was impressed because it will downshift when braking while still over 6000 rpm.How do I engage that? “upshift backout”
Not sure what article you're referencing, but the OP article is about the door handles on F150s.and if people actually read the article... the paddle shifters will be eliminated from the ford escape... who the fuck wants to paddle shift an escape? totally understandable money saving decision...
there is a ton of useless shit in the cars that can save millions to companies to re-direct that money into other things
I think you may have misunderstood. WOT in sport mode activates the upshift-backout feature. Upshift-back out probably negates the need for paddle shifting in many situations.I use the paddles on my 19 gt a10 pp1 all the time w/o being in sport mode. And no wot required on my a10.
