Seriously. Stick shift threads get so heated. Is it an affront to one's manhood to not desire 3 pedals in your car on a daily basis? Why is this seemingly nonsensical issue such a big hairy deal?
Well, several examples come to mind. I know this is mostly internet blowhardism, but on every forum I go on, whenever a car thread comes up, one of the first questions that comes up is "Does it come in manual?" followed shortly thereafter by comments about slushboxes, how only "real" drivers can drive a stick and everyone else should stay off the road, or any number of other arguments that have been played out ad nauseum.Not sure what you're trying to say with what appears to be multiple negatives. But it would seem to be a big hairy deal for you given you have brought it up.
I drove sticks for >25 years before switching to a car that only came in auto. That said, many modern transmissions aren't what they used to be in years past. In older cars, I'd far prefer to drive a stick, as autos were way too sloppy/inefficient and the gears too widely spaced. But modern autos with 6-8 close spaced gears with torque lockup in most of those gears, and you'd need to be one heck of a good driver to keep up with a similarly stick shifted car. And that's ignoring fuel efficiency. And with manual boxes now having upwards of 7 gears, that's getting a little too tedious even for someone like me who doesn't mind sticks. Long story short, sticks are becoming functionally obsolete.
