Just wondering what most people upshift/downshift around here....Me I tend to shift to make sure the next gear is at 2000rpm...good on gas, not on go. For a more performance driving, what do you guys do?<p>Andy
Geez............................. 2000rpm that's crazy low. i usually shift when just going around town anywhere from 2500rpm to 2800rpm. as far as gas milage goes right now i'm averaging 26.2mpg with my 6speed AWD. most(70%) of my driving is city/back roads.
for performance you should do about 6400 1st to 2nd and slightly lower each gear up so 4th to 5th is about 6000 you can get cartest a free software and it will show near optimal shift points. I've posted a link before on it.
