I finally found a use for the "C" position on the 7 speed automatic. I used it for the first 1,000 miles but then wondered when I would have a need for it again. I know it is good for driving on snow though I'll never do that. When else would it be usefull? Today I was in stop and go traffic with the trans in the "S" position. It kept up shifting and down shifting between first and second. During a stop, I put the selector into "C". It made the balance of the stop and go much more bearable.
