Bruce Nunnally Posted February 10, 2004 Report Share Posted February 10, 2004 Driver Shift Control (DSC) - Lets the driver switch from automatic to a clutchless five-speed high-performance manual transmission. Once the driver moves the gearshift lever into DSC mode, a quick tap is all that is required for smooth, crisp upshifts or downshifts within a selected range. The Transmission Control Module (TCM) protects the powertrain when in DSC mode by monitoring vehicle speed, engine torque and the gear being used to determine if it should upshift automatically to prevent damage. It also has coast clutches to provide engine braking in all five gears. I still wonder why the CTS did not get DSC as well for the V6. Can't add all that much cost can it, since the feature is built into the tranny?
