I should add that unless your sickly inlove with your car, it could behoove you to consider selling ur auto and getting a manual car. Then again, if you've had the car for a while and know all about it's troubles or lack there of, you may be hesitent to go for one that you know nothing about.
thats the thing right there, is I could sell my car to get a manual but I've had this car for a couple months and I've gotten all the bugs out of it eg. Cracked Transmission pan, Old Gasket, Air conditioner fix, Lose gas tank, old window motor, turn signal wiring fix. Now the car runs awesome and I don't feel like going through all of that again with a car I don't know.
