I am really looking into the WRX but refuse to buy right now cause I never drove a manual. So i guess this applies to any car really. Must you also downshift at all times? what happens if you slip the car into the wrong gear on the highway, do you crash and die? Is it better to go into neutral at stoplights or stay in gear? If I need to slow down on the freeway, should I go into natural, then straight back into fifth if I am at 60 mph? What about stop and go traffic? Also when reversing and paralell parking what is the process? Also hills? I know this is super annoying but let me know, cause I want to MANual up. Unfortunately everyone I know treats stick shifts like alien space crafts so I need to only look online, and to video games for practice.
