The 1-4 gear shift skip feature, which is supposed to improve fuel economy, can lead to missed shifts or loss of vehicle power during low speed maneuvering, possibly leading to a crash. A commercially available low cost component disables this feature, however it requires the consumer to void their manufacturer warranty in order to fix a safety defect.
