I'm 40 and I wouldn't have it any other way but with a manual. Manuals are more involving and allow you more control. Also, I've had experience with this MTX-75 manual transmission before, and it is very durable.

With that said, no, it would not "change my take" on your car to find out it is an automatic. It would please me, however, if high school kids actually still value a manual transmission, as it would give me hope that they will still be offered in the future.

By the way--why did you post this in interior mods and updates?
