Point Taken.
If you have not had a chance to do this - its like watching paint dry... once should really give it a try. My opinion on eco mode is there is so much work for the driver to do to keep the acceleration curve efficient and braking/coasting etc that it feels like going to to a job you hate every morning.... I would gladly take a second job at a drive-through if needed to find a few bucks just to stay out of eco-pro mode.

(not because of the power loss etc, but just the amount of work and thought I the driver have to provided to make eco-pro work, it should be a way more active technology and do more things on its own. Such as smoothing out the acceleration curve as a simple example)
