Greetings all,
I was just wondering if anyone converted to the paddle shifters on their auto trans. I know the Focus was prewired for them regardless, was thinking since it was an option on the EcoSport, that may be the case for them as well, just needing to swap steering wheels and select that option using ForTran
Thanks!

FWIW, I used the paddle shifters a few times, just to try them out. They work. I've used S mode on the rare occasion I take it off pavement.
But generally, this car just doesn't make me want to drive it hard. There really isn't enough power on tap to reward it.

Personally, I use my paddle shifters quite often. Moreso, in fact, than I ever did on my Chrysler 200. In terms of the power...I mean, I've driven 550hp Range Rovers, I have owned everything from a Range Rover to a Saab 9000 Aero to the Chrysler 200 with the Pentastar 3.6L, and a GMC Terrain with the 1.6L Turbo Diesel...the Ecosport 2.0 most certainly won't win any horse power competitions, but I've found that it does rear it's head a little bit if you get higher in the rev band.
