That's why you should buy a stick
If you don't know how, it's not hard to learn.
My sister picked it up in an afternoon
*grin* I learned on a stick. Didn't drive an auto for several years later. I was thinking of driving in traffic, not pure speed when I purchased though
There are plusses and minuses to both. And it IS feasible to swap an auto to a manual in the celica, it just costs about 2.5k - 3k dollars. I don't think that's worth it considering that I spent extra on the auto to begin with (as a wise person once pointed out). So if I could make the auto not so sluggish off the line, it would be "good enough"
