How many Americans here can drive stick?
@BigJohnson86, I learned to drive on a manual transmission car, and continued to drive manual cars for my first 10 years of driving.
I have also had motorcycles for 13+ years, which is also manual transmission.
@BigJohnson86, I learned to drive stick on my 2005 mustang GT a few months after graduating high school. A month and a half later drove to Atlanta Georgia and maaaaaan driving through the city was tough with a few steep slopes at stop lights and having cars behind you. Luckily I made it though without stalling out or rolling back and hitting a car behind me. It was like my own personal hell
@BigJohnson86, I had a manual Honda crx for my first car, I’ve only ever wanted a stick ever since.
@BigJohnson86, I learned on my parents Pontiac Vibe/Toyota Matrix. Learning with an anemic 100hp engine makes driving everything else easy.
@BigJohnson86, not I, but I want to learn
@BigJohnson86, since I was 14
@BigJohnson86, ive always had a manual car and an automatic truck so when i dont want to shift i just switch it up
@BigJohnson86, it's my daily. Love it.
@BigJohnson86, heyo. Learned to drive in general in the folks 2004 dodge ram then learned stick in the old 98 Ford contour. Drove that thing thing while in college, i miss driving stick, except when I'm in traffic... fvck traffic
@BigJohnson86, I know the concept, but haven't had enough practice to actually get a feel for it. Doesn't help that every car is different.
@BigJohnson86, I learned back when $0.75 a gallon was the expensive stuff.
@BigJohnson86, i know the concept, ive had a little practice on a manual forklift but unfortunately i cant clain that i know how to drive stick
@BigJohnson86, 93 Ford ranger 5 speed
@BigJohnson86, the only people here who drive automatic are disabled lol.
@BigJohnson86, Kind of. I ride a motorcycle, so I shouldn't have any real issue. But I've never actually driven a stick.
@BigJohnson86, I can, learned when I was like 14 on my dad’s Honda CR-V then practiced on my Subaru forester and now daily a Honda Fit with a stick. That thing would be so boring if it were auto
I have but I need more experience.
I hate the elitism with driving manual, its not that hard, all your grandmothers knew how to do it. I currently have 3 manual cars but I could see driving something with a modern dual clutch because autos have become really great.
@CrazyRightWinger, true, some people think its a great anti-theft system, but do you really think are car thief wouldn't know how to drive manual?
