Granted I've only been driving a manual for 3 months, but if I'm coming to a red light or stop sign, I usually downshift to 3rd and then just coast. Generally I will only down shift into 2nd if I'm taking a sharp corner or turning, or hitting really bad traffic. I never downshift into 1st, as frankly I hate first in the mustang.
