    I have the 6 speed manual, and it feels like when I clutch to shift, the engine revs a little higher in between...

    I'm used to my old RX-8 where when I clutched the revs went to 0 in pretty much .5 secs...

    Any help would be awesome, thanks guys.

    That's why I bought an automatic. I test drove a manual that did that and it drove me crazy!! I'm used to the Rpm's dropping when you clutch in.

    You'll get used to it soon enough. The computer will learn your driving habits, and it will nearly disappear.

    It's some idea that was conceived by an engineer that had never driven a manual before.

    You will get used to it and quit saying WTF every time you shift after a couple years

    Not worried about the sound as long as it's normal... And yeah, I'm already getting used to it.

    You will also notice that when slowing under compression when you hit 1200 RPM the truck will actually feel as if it goes into freewheel for a brief moment.
    Just be aware of this condition because you may be thinking you are slowing up for traffic just fine and then all of a sudden you are not slowing down.

    I test drove a new '09 6 speed last summer. I noticed the same thing. I would let off the gas and press the clutch, engine would gain RPMs. I have driven stick shifts all my life. This was a first for me. I didn't think I would handle it so I got an automatic.
