It's coming down to where driving a manual transmission and driving a vehicle so equipped is starting to become a "lost art" of sorts.
America is a lazy country. And if that's an insult to anyone, its sad to say but its true. People want power but they don't want to work for it. And the thing that always gets me is (I don't want a manual because of traffic" really? If you kept your distance its just as easy as driving an automatic. Now there's this talk about cars thar drive themselves. I'm sorry, I'd rather drive a Geo metro with a manual before I'm caught dead in something as lame as yhat
