I drove an auto for seven years before I got the jeep and I was SO ready to get back to a manual. I've owned it and the previous jeep now for 6 years and absolutely love the manual in all kinds of driving. Six speeds? Yah, sometimes....most of the time it is less than six, mostly a four speed. I skip gears all the time. I find myself going 1, 2, 4, 6 a lot and even more going 1, 3, 5. Around town in hilly areas I tend to stay in 5th so that she responds quickly to the accelerator.
