I've seen the skip shift light 2 times since purchasing the car. And that was only because I wanted to see if this feature actually worked. Otherwise I never see it pop up. Why do you ask? Because I drive my stang like it was meant to be driven!

Who's with me?!!!!!!!

P.S. - no offense to those that want to pamper and keep their driving under 2500 RPM. I'm just not one of those guys.

It happened to me on my test drive and believe me I was not driving like a "frigging grandma". I was shifting from 1st to 2nd at 6,500 rpm's when it went into 4th gear. It did it again a little later when I shifted from 2nd to 3rd at the same rpm's and it went into 5th gear. If I end up getting a 6M the first thing I will do is disconnect the skip shift solenoid. I would never use it anyway.
