I've only owned manuals. Deters people from asking to borrow and I like being in control of when my vehicle shifts. Hey, I can even operate a clutch in high heels! How many of you boys can say that?!

I say no as well, reason being because its a manual and poor saps such as yourself don't know how to use one properly. Oz, I thought u were the all powerful?! Why no stick? And yes, I can drive one in heels, snowboard boots, sandals, and even wedges pretty much any shoe but for some reason I struggle barefoot.

Baffles me when ppl say they don't know how as well and I'm older than 20 Oz but thx for the compliment. I do know plenty of grown men who were just never taught. No one likes to volunteer their vehicle for learning.

So does anyone who knows how to drive stick regret buying an automatic? Stop and go traffic and creepin up rough terrain in 4wd is tricky but any grocery getters miss using both hands and legs to drive?

A girl that drives a manual, that's awesome! You are one of the only ones I know that daily drives one! I can't comment on the heels thing but I drive mine with everything else on, steel toe work boots or my motocross boots.

I bought my manual purely for nostalgia. Now that I've driven it for a little more than a year, I'd like to go back. That being said, I don't regret it, my desire has just run is course.
