;eekb; Does anyone know if its okay to drive in the power mode all the time (especially at highway speeds ?

Yep. No problem. Power mode does not do anything that could damage the engine.

thanks I thought it might put added strain on the engine or trans

The "Power" button just changes the RPM shift point of the transmission. Upshift later, downshift earlier - too early IMHO.

On the highway, you may notice the tranny shifts down way too easy and frequently.. I don't use it on the highway.... But, SURE do love it in the city ;Dy;

It's safe to engage the POWER BUTTON and keep it engaged. I save gas with it on in the city, don't need it on the highway cruising, helps with passing on highway eg. ENGAGE to pass then DIS-ENGAGE IMO.
