Does anybody drive a 6-speed manual?

I just bought one and I don't really understand when I'm supposed to use the 6th speed. It seems like if it was just for fuel conservation, I would switch right to 6th from 4th...In other words, I switch into 5th at around 60 MPH and I've been switching to 6th at 65.

I don't want to ruin my tranny. Anyone have advice?

I drive a 6 speed. I run through my gears just like I did when I had 4 or 5. As soon as the engine gets to a whining then I shift. I too often go from 4th to 6th but only when on the highway.

Yeah, another issue is I think I'm psyching myself out because my last car didn't have a tach, and this one does. I should just listen to it instead of worrying about the actual RPM count.

over time you will be completley used to this vehickles accelaration, braking, etc....that tach is your friend, and I wouldn't suggest pushing past the redline too much for now...use both the tach and the sound/feel of the motor..

I have a 2013 Mazdaspeed3.

Depends on how I'm driving. I shift from 4th to 6th if I run 4th up to 70. I generally try to keep the turbo from spooling up. If I get into 6 gear too early or below 65 the turbo will spool up to keep the power up.

Rumor is they are bringing back the Speed6 next year and giving it a diesel. As soon as I heard that, I wished I could have held off a year to get a car.

I am looking to get the exact car at the start of next year or within the next 2 years. Looks like a great but versatile ride that is also practical.

Sorry for the thread hijack, Buck.

Yes, I can't say enough good things about it. It's a blast to drive and a hell of a bargain.

Yea I would like to get as much bang for the buck as I can for a sporty but practical car (girlfriend says no more coupes!), while taking out less than 10k for a loan. The MazdaSpeed 3 so far stands far and above the rest for me in my research.

Were you able to find all the options you wanted or did you custom build it? I was looking at custom building it from the website because it still is a helluva deal and making sure I get it like I want it.

There are really only two builds for it. With the tech package or without the tech package. I felt the tech package was over priced for what it had, so I got it without the tech package option.

The MS3's are nice, but I wouldn't buy one if that is your criteria, unless it has to be a relatively new car.
