@TheHorse funny thing...in Europe driving stick seems to be preferred. My son is one of the few American young adults working at an American DOD resort who can drive vehicles from the facility's fleet. And from what he says most of the other vehicles on the road are also stick and (horror of horrors) people walk everywhere .

@asfarasiknow Thats really sad. But I feel a little practice will do the thing. It doesn't seem that difficult. But ofcourse for me it might not be difficult but for someone else it could be. As there are many things which aren't difficult for the world but for me it is.

I've never needed to, but I could probably do it. I drive farm equipment all the time and they require clutches to shift gear. The biggest problem and why I wouldn't want a manual car is my legs. Long legs that are awkward to drive with in the first place. I don't want to tax my legs trying to fit them down there where I would need to use the clutch. I'll stick to my automatics. Other than that I know all about shifting gears for different terrains and using the clutch to do so.

Also different in South Africa. Majority of people can drive a car with manual transmission. I had an automatic car once and I hated it. I personally enjoy a car with manual transmission and will hold on to mine if they stop making them. HaHa.
