Learn how to drive a manual

ReviewThis month I purchased a gas Cruze Eco with the six speed manual. I just filled up the tank and checked the gas mileage. I got 39 mpg! That was all around driving, although the majority was highway. Then I drove 98 miles all highway at 62 mph, twice aggressively passing and negotiating some hills. I filled up and it only took 2 gallons! 49 mpg! I am very happy so far. It handles well and isn't underpowered. My 2004 impala 3.8 which I traded in for this had a better ride and more passing power, but I don't think I lost much in these areas. I am very happy. My advice: learn how to use a manual:>)
Best FeaturesI really enjoy the manual. I find I can "cruze" at 30 in fourth, and at 40 in fifth and at 50 in sixth very nicely when in town and not needing to accelerate. Othewise, I shift at higher speeds. I am 6'2" and feel very comfortable. I appeciate the big trunk. I also find it to be very quiet on the highway.
Worst FeaturesI can't think of any. I'm just hoping the ground clearance is sufficient for the snow in Wisconsin. But then of course, that is what my 1999 Jeep Wrangler is for.
