I've owned my 2018 for 4 months now and am just starting to use the downshift feature coming off the freeway. I rarely go over 3000rpm or pass on the highway so there's no need to use Sport mode. I want my car to last 10 years and a good way to do that is to keep the revs down. That said, winter is coming and I'm anxious to see how the AWD and my winter tires perform. Snow is the great equalizer where raw horsepower becomes less important than traction and sure-footedness.
