On a FWD V6 SE, can you leave Sport Mode on all the time, or does it reset to Normal when shutting off vehicle? Guess I'll find out when I get mine in a few days, but just curious. Thanks!

The drive mode will stay in sport but the shift mode portion of it will revert back to the regular drive mode. Not sure if that makes sense, but the Atlas drive modes are made up of shift mode, ACC mode, steering mode, etc. The vehicle will stay in sport mode, but the shift style has to revert to regular drive mode for EPA fuel economy reasons.

Thanks for the explanation. So when you get back in the Atlas after shutting down and you start it up, does it show you鈥檙e still in Sport, or how do you know you have to re-activate Sport shift mode?

When you look at the gauge cluster it will show you are in D instead of S. In fact, I think any time you shift into park or N it reverts back to D. You have to give it the tug back to engage sport shifting.
