Default Re: 2010 Buyer

It's not alone these days. If you make having a manual transmission a requirement for buying a new car your options dwindle considerably right off the bat. My father had this exact problem when he finally killed his '92 Jetta and had to go shopping for a new car. Most of the stuff that he found outwardly interesting flat out isn't available with a stick shift. To add insult to injury, many makes these days (Honda, etc.) actually charge extra to get a model with a stick shift as opposed to one with an automatic.

Riddle me that one, Batman...

'12 Subaru Impreza manual, hatchback, silver.
'99 Chevy Silverado 1500, automatic, with pixel camo. For the [i]discerning[/i] redneck gentleman.
Used to have a '02 SL2 automatic.
