For me I have come to the decision that yes, the constant changing from 4 to 8 back to 4 cylinders is always accompanied by a slight unsettling of RPM that goes with it, although I can't speak for most that say they never notice the MDS mode, I've always been able to identify it with both the trucks I have owned. Now that I have the ability to in effect use my overdrive gear minus the MDS, hearing from others in previous models that deleted the MDS with tuners, how smooth they drove and in a few cases no detriment to fuel mileage, I kind of proved that to myself with the last trip I did with my truck. So for me, I choose not to use it.
