yes the E was not designed for sport, but neither was it desigened for NOPI racing,6 speed transmissions, turbochargers, or DOG friendlyversion. oh wait that one was from the factory so it must be right. of course who needs light bulbs when kerosene lamps work great. why dont you guys get a life and maybe some ideas of your own.
The new Lancer has a CVT and that is the reason why you aren't used to the shifting. It acts like that whether you are paddling or not. They are on my gf's Rogue with the CVT and she has never used them. I did once or twice, nothing special.have you ever driven with paddle shifters? I did on the new Lancer. IT doesn't give you that "vrrrrmmm....rrrrrrunnnnnn.....n...vrmmmm" feeling in shifts, and it makes you feel like you're playing a really bad racing video game where you have to follow traffic rules and such. It's something to sell to a younger audience I guess, rather than makign a video game more realistic, they made real life more like a videogame, and it is not fun to drive, you will reach to the floor or right in front of you for the shifter still while you drive it, there's nothign comfortable about it.
:lol: Don't ask for peoples opinion if you are going to throw a tantrum. TO answer your original question, they don't offer it because they decided very few people want it.why dont you guys get a life and maybe some ideas of your own.
Ditto that - the CVT is a "Continuously variable transmission", so no "shift-points". It doesn't change gears at all. Instead a belt travels up and down a conical pulley, so you have "infinite" gears. They can be fun to shift with paddle shifters if they are programmed right. Many CVTs have a "Sports" mode that you can engage, usually with a button near the shifter, that changes the feel of the shifting to more agressive and similar to a regular trans.The new Lancer has a CVT and that is the reason why you aren't used to the shifting.

Actually, in Ford's flappy-paddle cars, the paddles on either side of the wheel are duplicates of each other. If you pull toward you, you upshift, and if you press away from you, you downshift.Almost, you need both hands to paddle shift up and down. If you only need to up-shift or down-shift then one hand would work.
The question would be more, what would they do with the spot for the shifter if they put a paddle shifter in?
I remember driving a Prelude with the manu-matic shifter and an Acura TL with one too. I didn't really like it too much. It was really hard to get used to the shifting. I kept trying to shift into second gear by throwing the shifter back.:-x
That was a very rough test drive and the Prelude didn't smell too good when I was done.
