I don't have a the MT but I believe the driver for the 6 speed was for fuel efficiency. The adaptive tranny "feature" was likely due to fuel consumption as well. Too bad for us this technology is unrefined!

ps the dealer "reset" the adaptive codes but after 2 weeks the tranny seems to be relearning it's bad habits.
