Well I appreciate this info, now I'm beginning to understand the relationship with skip shift, traction control and sport mode has on shifting the transmission. Wouldn't it be nice to ask the Ford dealership to as an option (not to void the warranty) to disconnect skip shift and set the car to always be in Sport mode?
