Like the title says, do you use it? Or match your own revs? I turned mine off after getting the car few days later.

I use mine for just normal commuting as it just makes life easier going from work and back, but if I'm taking her on the twisties then I turn it off.

I personally have mine off, saves me a little bit of gas lol but I definitely think it’s a cool feature to have for people barely getting into manual cars or just want to use it

Same here. I turned it off after finding out that it bounces the rpm little bit much to have a smooth downshift/upshift! I seemed to be getting little better mpg just matching my own revs. I was just curious to see if anyone here uses it on or match their revs!

I mostly keep it on because I'm still learning heel-toe and don't want to drive off the side of a cliff in Malibu.

One day, I'll leave it completely off!

I turned mine off immediately. I don't drive remotely aggressive enough on the street to warrant rev matching or heel/toe driving. On the track though... that's a different story.

I never used it until about 2 weeks ago. I actually really like it!

Yup, all the time. Smooth as butter. I will occasionally turn it off to heel toe myself for nostalgia purposes, but the rev maching works so good in this car it just helps you focus on everything else when your tackling corners on the back roads.
Dont think you can find this feature on any other car in this price range...Enjoy it! 😉

I double clutch (to include rev-matching the the main and input shafts) due to years of driving Subarus and their agrarian-grade transmissions. I leave mine set to “Sport” to slowly break the habit. :)

I get what you're saying here but rev-matching a downshift doesn't imply you're driving hard. It's just a smoother, less drivetrain-jarring way to downshift.

Personally, I tend to leave mine off if I'm just puttering around in traffic. But with aggressive backroad driving, I turn it on so I can focus on controlling the car and being smooth.

I literally daily the rev match feature. The N does it so much better than I ever could.
I daily the Rev match as well.. doesnt it help preserve the clutch?
Without rev match it forcefully jumps to match

The alternative to having the car rev match is to rev match yourself using a throttle blip or full on heel-toe. Otherwise, yes, you end up slipping the clutch and/or causing drivetrain shock as the engine tries to catch up to the transmission speed as you engage the clutch again.

If you don't know how to rev match, yes, you should have the car do it for you, unless your downshifts are always when the car is in the super low revs.

I just wanted to clarify that the alternative to having the car rev match is not drivetrain shock. As others have said you can rev match manually, although the Veloster N's throttle mapping makes it more annoying to do that than, say, my ND Miata, so I've found myself having rev match on more than off when I drive the VN.

This right here is why I don't heel toe in the car, even tuned the throttle mapping makes it annoying to heel toe smoothly. The rev match is really good, if you want to still do heel toe on your own but have issues with getting it right because of the throttle mapping or the pedal placement (it's not the best) you can put it in sport and still do it on your own, the car will save you if you mess it up.

I'm going to see if a Sprint Booster helps me adjust the throttle pedal mapping and response more to my liking. This car feels like it gives you 50% of itself for the first 90% of pedal travel. And it's not about turbo vs NA, because the power is there instantly when you push past the first 90%. This car has an amazing little engine so I don't understand why it wants to make me work so hard to use it.

In my Miata, split second throttle tip-in and tip-out gets your revs exactly where they should be for a downshift. We're talking instantaneous match. If you're completely new to rev matching, it makes it super easy to learn and master. Meanwhile, in the VN, I've noticed there's a noticeable delay after tip-in before the revs climb to where I'd want them to for a smooth shift. I could probably get used to it if it was my only car, but I switch between them frequently and the delay is disappointing.

I've never considered a pedal tuner before, but my experience with the VN has left me frustrated at the stock mapping, so I figured I might as well take this into my own hands and try a discreet, customizable, easily reversable fix. We'll see how that turns out.

Did you end up doing this? Curious to know if it helped

So, I tried to see how the placement for heel-toe is but I just can't figure out a comfortable way to make it work in the VN. I know they sell spacers that would move the pedals to make this easier but I don't know if I would go that route. The rev match works really great.

Yes I agree the pedals are too far apart unless you’re big foot😂.
