SAY WHAT?1. its a stick shift. you shift into different gears for different situations. accelerating, moving at a steady flat speed, climbing.... etc...
2. Part of the fun of a stick shift, it YOU control how the car revs and accelerates.
I could drive in 4th gear and climb beatifully but rev higher at speed and use for gas. or use 6th on flat terrain and have a smooth lowish rev at speed and have good gas mileage. or use 6th for trying to drive at speed on a climb and watch the car struggle with too high a gear. You control the gearing and can take advantage of the gears that work with the situation.
