The paddles will hold a downshift for a considerable distance, but upshifts 'disappear' in just a few seconds, in D mode. They'd be alot more useful if they held the 'gear' for 15-25 seconds. I use the paddles so that I can use 1/2 throttle, or more, at low revs, to let the engine lug while getting good MPG and good accel. In D mode, the system will go back to D, and the engine will rev 4000+ before the car has accelerated enough to catch the next gear.
