Hi All,
Should my 24 Performance 6M/T have a Mode selector switch?

Thanks, yes I have the synch switch, so does that also put you in sport mode when activated?
Appreciate the help.

Check out the manual. It has a lot of good info on the car's systems.

AFAIK, only the 9AT has drive modes. From the manual, in the section on "Automatic Transmission":

The section on "Manual Transmission" discusses only SyncroRev Match, including information on what it does, with no mention of "Sport Mode."

Bill,
Thanks, I see my error, didin't realize I was seeing the mode switch in the auto section Agree the manual does not have the mode switch, but the synch switch instead, which I do have.
Sorry for the confusion.
Regards
Jeff

No worries. Even the manual isn't entirely clear on this. If you dig into the brochure mentions it more clearly (if you read the fine print, and who does that?)

Footnote 14 on drive modes.

Fine print for footnote 14.

While looking this up, I realized that the Sport 9AT seems to have drive modes, while the Sport 6MT does not have SynchroRev Match. Huh.

Can any Sport owners out there confirm this?

It took me a solid two weeks to figure out what that damn button did when I got the car. You are not alone!

@bpeckham I can only speak for my manual Sport. There is a blank where Drive Mode button would be. I was thinking of ordering the drive mode button for aesthetics

I just use Heel Toe for rev matching when downshifting.
