I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse. It has a manual transmission.
When I first taught my girlfriend how to drive it, after about a week of only driving in a church parking lot, she took it to the streets. This is were I'm confused, somehow she made a u-turn while in 4th gear doing only 5 mph. I was pretty sure she would stall the car, she just learned how to drive it.
She made this u-turn and didn't stall while in 4th gear!
Can anyone answer how that can happen?
The RPM's were very low. I was sitting right there in the passenger seat. I saw the gear she was in and the speed, 5 mph.
