2013 Cadillac ATS: Manual Shift Effort

June 19, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Here's something I've never experienced before: When manually toggling gears in our long-term 2013 Cadillac ATS there's distinctly different effort required for up- and downshifts. Downshifts, executed by pulling the lever back, require far more effort than upshifts.

I have no idea why a manufacturer would do this. Makes me wonder if this was an accident or a "tuning" choice.
