I agree, although on Autotrader a lot of ads that say manual are actually automatics, and some ads where they don't state which transmission is used can be manuals. With Autotrader I have found that the best way to tell that the car is a manual is to look at the pictures. A lot of dealers don't seem to know anything about the used cars they sell.
