Hi everyone, I have a question about the 10 speed automatic with the 2.0T.

When using the paddle shifters, I can not get down to 1st gear. It seems to start out in 2nd (?) and go from there. When downshifting, coming from 2nd and clicking down to get to 1st will get me a blinking "D1" before going back to 2nd. Does anyone have any information? Is anyone able to manually get into 1st gear?

Oh Hi! Nice to "meet you". It would be best if you introduce yourself in the new member's introductions https://www.accordxclub.com/forum/6-new-member-introductions/ and say "Hi, I'm so and so." before anything. :angel:
But to answer your question, It's more than likely a safety feature like GMs. I believe the trans only uses 1st from a complete stop to save engines and trans from abuse.
