My wife learned maybe enough to get me to the hospital with a broken leg and still doesn't understand how I know when to shift even with music cranked. Mostly feel no looking at the tach really.

Re: Accidentally (sort of) downshifting 2-1

I can't really remember not knowing because I started learning about 8 or 9 years old and have barely owned an automatic. It's always interesting to read these threads.
