Shift Speeds (Manual Transmission)

WARNING!
If you skip a gear when you downshift, you could lose control of the vehicle. You could injure yourself or others. Do not shift down more than one gear at a time when you downshift.

Notice: If you skip more than one gear when you downshift, or if you race the engine when you release the clutch pedal while downshifting, you could damage the engine, clutch, driveshaft or the transmission. Do not skip gears or race the engine when downshifting.

If the vehicle speed drops below 32 km/h (20 mph), or if the engine is not running smoothly, downshift to the next lower gear.

You may have to downshift two or more gears to keep the engine running smoothly or for good performance.
