Hi Everyone! I'm the brand new owner of a 2006 Mustang V6. So far I love the car however I do have some concerns and fears I'm hoping I can overcome with the help of this community. This is the very first car I've ever owned which is very exciting at the same time though I've never driven a manual transmission before this so I'm fearful of doing damage to my new baby while I'm getting accustomed to it. Any and all advice and suggestions are welcomed! Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums! Take your time and get to know the transmission, they are not the manuals of the past and are pretty simple to drive. Try to find someone with some experience to ride with you and help you out at first. Once you get it down you'll find automatics boring.

Thanks guys! I'm catching on really quickly. Last night while watching tv I dozed off and snored and my bodies reaction to the sound of my snore was to maneuver my feet as if I was pressing in the clutch and gas. Lol

Bruce, welcome to AFM. The Tremec T-5 transmission is very durable. Your clutch is hydraulic (not cable) and it can be a little stiff to depress primarily because of the return spring on the pedal. Once you get accustomed to the clutch you'll be rowing gears and having a blast.
