It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.

Why Do Manual Transmissions Feature an H Pattern?

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 5, 2016 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
used ford cars and trucks for sale vancouverbcManual transmission vehicles are an ideal choice for drivers that love a spirited and responsive ride – one that has you engaged in every acceleration, downshift and turn.
 
But, have you ever wondered why manual transmissions use an H pattern? Many drivers have. We break it down for you! 
 
Safety
One of the key reasons manufacturers use an H pattern is safety. Many of today’s manual transmission cars and trucks employ up to six speeds and a reverse. Having these gears in an organized H pattern ensures that drivers don’t mistakenly jump from first to fifth or sixth gear. This could be very damaging to an engine, as it rapidly increases revolutions – something you don’t want to happen to your vehicle! The calculated horizontal and vertical motions of an H pattern force a driver to maintain proper gear shifting sequence, thus ensuring the safe operation of the vehicle. 
 
Space Saving
Another reason for the H pattern is that it uses less room than a straight line shift pattern, allowing for the gearbox to be much more compact. This is especially helpful in smaller or sporty vehicles where interior space is at a premium.
 
More “Throw”
While an H pattern offers increased safety and efficiency, it also offers more driving performance. The more compact the gearbox, the shorter the throw or the distance the shifter travels between gears. A shorter throw makes for a far more spirited drive, which is the main appeal of a manual transmission.
