The cool thing about that car is you could feel the exact RPM that the ECU started to give the car fuel as the RPMs fell. So if I was coasting to a stop in 3rd gear I could feel when the fuel came back on, I would downshift just before that point.
I miss that car (my younger sister has it now), I might try to steal it back. The gas mileage was so much better than the Focus.
