TV's Vinnie: Or better still fark those sticks and drive an auto-transmission.Seriously. Why do they still make cars with sticks in the 21st century? May as well have a hand crank sticking from the front bumper to start the car while you're at it.

CtrlAltDestroy: LeroyBourne: If it's not a manual transmission, it's a deal breaker. I love telling car salesmen that when they repeatedly try to sell me automatics.I went to test drive a FR-S and ran into that. The guy I unfortunately got stuck with was the sales manager. He works the floor at that dealership. He couldn't understand why I insisted on a manual. Maybe it was because they only had an automatic on hand but he did look genuinely confused at the concept. I told him that I preferred a manual and that I was looking around for a new sports car. I just got done looking at a couple others and I know what I want. He tells me to hold on for a moment and disappears for 10 minutes.I was sitting at a table staring out of the front windows and see him pull up out front in a tC. He comes in and tries to get me to take a test drive. "What part of 'I'm looking for a sports car' didn't you understand?" "It's kind of sporty." "... No." and then I left.So, he was treating me as a walking dollar sign and was trying to get me to leave with something, anything and he couldn't understand why I wanted a stick shift. I've done to this dealer for something else in the past and I got him before. He's just a douche.The people at Subaru were actually pleasant to deal with and talk to. Fark you, Scion guy.
pute kisses like a man: Pants full of macaroni!!: If you cannot drive a stick, you have no worth as a human being and should be shot./just gettin' that outta the way//now to pop up some popcorni used to not know how to drive a stick. then my car went underwater and I had to learn how to drive my wife's car (a manual transmission). it was hell. but, I learned./ i still do not see the attraction. after several years of exclusively driving a stick, it still sucks. i guess the manual option was cheaper and it gets better gas mileage. so, there is that. otherwise, driving sucks, and the more you have to do when driving, the more it sucks.
Tom_Slick: new_york_monty: Tom_Slick: Sin_City_Superhero: Tom_Slick: Ultimate Factory installed anti-theft deviceThree on the tree.I think potential thieves who can not drive stick would destroy a three on the tree trying to put it into "Drive." They would be easy to catch though.Three on the tree is a manual transmission. No "drive," just first, second, third, and reverse. Haven't seen one in ages.Yes I know, but you see thieves who can't drive stick wouldn't know such a thing so they would grind the gears trying to find "Drive" and destroy the transmission.
