Curiosity! Do you drive an automatic or a manual...?
You bought a new one I'm guessing?funcar4me said:I would have preferred to have a MT. I just didn't have time to wait for the dealer to find me one.:sad:
Next time - IF there's a next time - insist on your preference. If they still refuse, walk away and find another dealer who will meet your need.funcar4me said:I would have preferred to have a MT. I just didn't have time to wait for the dealer to find me one.:sad:
YES!!! Yes, and yes.wastedonanime said:Oh! Out of additional curiosity, a question for the MT drivers: Has anyone been asked "is it easy to drive with the shifter up there?" I tell them that it's surprisingly comfortable...
Here in the Monterey area there are hills of the same caliber. They don't bother me. I guess I've just spent so long in a manual that I don't think about it. I'm far more bothered by automatics that try to inch forward every time you take your foot off the brake, and downshift on hills where it isn't really necessary.rymo926 said:I drive too much too in SF. I really have no preference as i can do both, and it doesn't annoy. though the manual doesn't give me enough benefits over the auto. One thing for sure, I hate SF hills(more like mountains) and I travel those alot, It's a b!tch either in mt or at. (think grid lock traffic). my friend is a hardcore mt driver, say he has more control. he goes around the hills, where's the control in that.
on a side note, to talk sh!t about him since he will never read this. he can't downshift, never engine brake(rides in neutral). he only ride the gears higher(his term of control). which all can be done in an auto.
