How To Use Paddle Shifters

Jaguar XF Paddle Shifters


Paddle shifters are a feature that’s standard or available on many vehicles, but have you ever wondered why they’re there or what they’re for? These are common questions at Jaguar Willow Grove, so we’ve decided to provide a guide for Mainline drivers. See how paddle shifters can make your daily drive more exciting.

What Are Paddle Shifters?

Typically, paddle shifters are exclusive to higher trim levels or sportier vehicles because they give drivers the ability to switch gears quickly. You will usually find them near or behind the steering wheel. One paddle brings you down a gear, and the other paddle brings you up a gear. When you use a paddle, the clutch receives an electronic signal for gear selection, and the gear shifts.

Although it may seem a bit more complicated, paddle shifters are quite simple to use. Another benefit is that they improve control to help you manage your RPMs better. With correct downshifting, the use of paddle shifters could even help increase the longevity of your brake pads.

How to Use Paddle Shifters

While driving a car equipped with paddle shifters, be sure it is in manual mode so you are in full control to paddle shift. The right paddle upshifts and the left paddle downshifts. With paddle shifters, you don’t have to worry as much about not shifting properly. Paddle shifters won’t change gears if:

  • You press one paddle while the other is being held down
  • You press both paddles at the same time
  • You upshift before the engine reaches the lower limit of the higher gear
  • You downshift before reaching the upper limit of the lower gear
  • If you’d rather let the automatic transmission take over for a while, just enter D mode.
  • You try to shift to third or higher while stationary
