iam ahmad from egypt but now in oman i just want to ask you if this problem is common for mmt corola cars or not coz i want to buy car with same mmt 2009 and i just read ur subject & i want ur advice i[censored] dont mind my email [protected]
I am Dr.Hesham ElBadawy,
I am one of the pioneers who had brought the MMT system.
Basically, the MMT is needing some sort of special treatment.
If you need to pick up the car and take off very fast (as the American style); So, put your knob of the Gear box to the position M.
after while grab the flipper + or just tick the knob to +
then we can go back to situation E mode
When you will go up and need to faster your vehicle return back to M and pull down the flipper - then the + sign
Other technique is always using E mode but with the aid of +/- flippers in the driving wheel.
The MMT is wonderfull technique but very complicated one and it is basic feature in the lexury cars and sports cars looks like Lamborjenie and BMW M serires. But the Problem her may be summarized that the engine is 1600cc only and this system is going to outstanding for the large capacity engines as in Toyota Sequaia 5700cc
This is my opinion and I am driving in that way.
I am working as:
