1. I stalled the car about three times so far is that bad?
No, not for a n00b driver of stick
2. How bad is stalling for the car?
It's not really going to hurt anything.
3. When i parked it in the garage after having gotten home from the dealership it smelled significantly like burnt rubber. Is that normal?
I wouldn't sweat that unless it gets worse.
4. Everytime I upshift/downshift the car jerks a little bit, what can be done to avoid this?
Learn to drive better. In other words learn to shift smoother, match RPMS with car speed, gear, etc. (This is probably worse when you run the A/C, no.)
I am looking foward to your guys's respnse and i'm glad to be a part of the community!
