Car Buyers
A fresh approach...
...for today's more sophisticated vehicles

Just bought a manual car, or planning a purchase...?
Don't take any chances, make sure you know how to treat it right, and if you share it with loved ones, make sure they do too - a small investment now could save you a bundle later...

Whether you want economy, performance, driving satisfaction, or simply the peace of mind knowing you're doing it right - ProShift can help you get the most out of your new car. Check out our Driving Evaluations section.

  • Fuel Economy (EPA): Evaluate and compare makes and models (note that you can switch to metric units - check the top right of most pages) - enter

  • A word about economy: Perhaps you chose the manual transmission model because of lower purchase and operating costs - keep in mind you could easily cancel out those savings if you don't drive the car correctly!
