Do your Honda CR-V's auto shift to 4th in S-mode?

    Hi.
    I have a February 2017 2.0L petrol CR-V automatic Black Edition, the log book says it's an RM5. This model has a regular 5 speed automatic transmission; it's not a CVT.

    The manual, and indeed all planet earth manuals that I can find, says that in S-mode it auto changes from 1st to 4th; so it doesn't reach 5th in S-mode.

    However mine only ever shifts to 3rd; no matter what I do, how I drive it, irrelevant of how gentle I am or whether the road is level, up or down and no matter what speed I'm doing, it refuses to automatically change up to 4th.

    Local Honda have looked at it and don't know why either.

    How are others cars responding in S-mode please.

    With thanks in advance.

    Regards

    Andrew

    I don't think this model has a S or sport mode. My previous (not a Honda) automatic had S Mode, but the Honda 5 speed auto doesnt. I only ever tried S mode a few times. I left mine in normal auto for 99% of the time.

    The button on the stick in the CR-V is for low gear use- up to 3rd gear only, on mine anyway.

    Check your owners manual for a full description.

    Hi.
    My model definitely has the S-Mode; PRNDS.
    Each manual for this model across the whole planet says S-mode 1st to 4th.
    Any version with the button on the gear shift for selecting a different/ 3rd gear is an older model.
    Regards
