The brochure I have is the one I picked up before I bought my bus in March '04, so it doesn't cover the 6 speed option for the 1.6vvt. I would imagine there can't be too much difference between the boxes.
I would point out that pulling away in 2nd does slightly increase the load on all of the drivetrain and you do have to slip the clutch a bit more, so I suppose for the long term using 1st will be kinder to the vehicle.
I've only used 2nd to pull away if the road conditions were such that the tyres were unable to grip when using 1st - i.e. heavy snow or ice. I will use 2nd if the car is not at a complete standstill/rolling slowly.


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
