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.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
