I am wondering if it will do any damage if I shift my non-manual mode automatic transmission manually.
Isn't it the same transmission anyway except that they added a manual mode shifting selector?
I would shy away from manually shifting an auto w/out tap shift because it's not meant to do that. That tap shift mode is more than an extra lever, it's got computer programming to make it work properly. I don't the extent of the damage that could be caused over time, but I wouldn't want to risk it.
