Why on earth would they put paddle shift in? Does anyone see this as a benefit to 4x4ing?

Give it that sporty feel :thumb: . No benefit at all that I can see when 4x4ing but wouldn't stop me from fanging around in one in the bush.

Yep,

I use mine a fair bit. Great when towing the camper trailer down hills. You just flip the paddle and down it goes.

The flappy paddles keep it in gear, so you dont get that auto run away felling anymore.

So it's the same as the 'tiptronic' type gear shift that is in the 2010 model, except up on the steering wheel.

Lazy as!! :D :D :D

Yep, welcome to progress mate. Time to move with the times.

If it is ok to fit it to a Ferrari, then it must be ok for my little Challenger.

Rob, on another forum they are reporting that the auto jumps into the next gear once certain revs have been achieved. This has been verified by Mr Mishi on the MY10 model. Have put your MY11 model in this situation to test if it does the same thing?

Yep,

it seems to drive along in top gear early. Sort of like driving in 5th gear through the school zone. Although, being an auto with flappy paddles, it doesnt bother me as I can just flick it down and away it goes.

The flappy paddles are now standard issue, not an optional extra. Yea they might be a bit of a wank thing, but they do work and when towing, they do serve a purpose.

I have to ask, why are you against flappy paddles on a 4wd. Ok on rally cars, ok on sports cars, why not a 4wd?

Hey Rob.

In all seriousness, I'm not against them at all. Particularly now that you've pointed out that they're very useful when towing (I had a go at you with the Lazy comment but that was just for laughs. Not serious).
:D
It's just when I first read that they'd put them in there, my first thought was that they're high performance kit for cars like the Dodge Challenger (purple car) not the Mitsubishi Challenger that we all know and love. I guess I didn't consider their usefulness in a 4x4.

And... I don't have them in mine... so I'm jealous
:D

Well I just put in an order for one in Ironbark. They are in such sort supply because Mitsubishi lowered the price a little and fixed some of the main problems with the first gen. I have to wait for it to come on a boat, 3 months. :(

Fingers crossed the next boat coming in a few weeks has some which my dealer can snap up.

A friend of mine picked up their new one on monday got the 2011 plate for the price of 2010 plate. They were after a 2010 model but wanted it in black the dealer said they didn't have one so my friend said bye, the salesman said just wait a minute and went and saw his boss, came back and said they could have the 2011 model.
