The manual indicates you should use LOW gear when traveling below 7 mph. So I this means HIGH for speeds above 7? Did any of your dealers give any guidance on this.
To be correct would be to say high or low range because one is not shifting the transmission which in this case is the CVT. Even though I know this I still find it easier to tell someone to shift the transmissioncorrect me if I'm wrong, when you say it isn't high gear or low gear, yet when you pull on the shifter it moves the trans into a different set of "gears" and does nothing to the cvt so there for wouldn't it be low gear and high gear
Amen! Couldn't have said it better myself:smile2: Biggest killer of belts is heat and dumb azz people! When in low the clutches are spinning faster therefor drawing in more air to cool them. Yes the car will do it in high range but that creates excessive heat and BAM! blown or smoked belt! It's not PoPo's fault it's yers:surprise: Even in low ya gotta know the machines limits. It's not a small block Chevy or 6.7 Cummins, it's a 1500# 100hp toy. Be smart my friends and drink lots-o-Coors Light:laugh:Long story short, always use low unless you need high. I spend 90% of the time in low in my Ranger. Anything below 25mph use low. If you want to burn up belts, high will certainly do it.
With that being said I always thought you needed to pick what gear you wanted to ride in, and if you needed high or low you needed to stop before shifting. If I start in low and I get to 25mph can I shift to high without stopping.Long story short, always use low unless you need high. I spend 90% of the time in low in my Ranger. Anything below 25mph use low. If you want to burn up belts, high will certainly do it.
