Ok this just pissed me off

By modifier_93

I cant believe people are so lazy and so use to driving automatics. This article just shows how lazy most people are that they cant even bother to learn stick.

i agree with both of you. From what ive heard in 2013 they are doing away with ALL manual transmission cars. So if you want a manual transmission then you gonna have to buy it before then. And yea the whole toyota things is dumb in my opinion. put the car in neutral and blow the motor. People dont make sense if your not hitting the gas and going faster throw it in neutral. I also cant believe the people are making this much of a big deal when BMW had the same problem. Yet they never got in this much trouble and had more problems. I would still buy a toyota or a toyota made car. they are still good cars. Anyway thats my rant on that. but with the whole transmission thing, my old cougar was the only automatic i owned. The 3000gt, supra, and celica are all manual and i love them more then i ever did the cougar. I think it more the fact that they are just coming up excuses for young drivers. Most of them are in accidents cause they cant put down the damn phone for more then 30sec. I have the motorola android for verizon and they have an app on there that converts your voice to a text if you needed to and it also has the text answering machine so that if your driving you just activate that and it answers all text for you with whatever statement that you want it to say. very affective. Im seriously disappointed with the way that automakers are dealing with the harsh economy. they screwed themselves with giving corporate bigger bonuses than they could handle. They need to get rid of all that corruption.

If they stop selling cars with manuals then I will not even consider buying a new car! The part about distracting young drivers is BULL$H!T, manuals require a certain amount of understanding and concentration that help keep the driver focused on the car and the road. "Idle hands are the devils workshop" and automatic transmission equipped cars give the driver an idle hand!!

Totally agree. All of my cars are manual transmissions. The first car I ever owned was an automatic, and I've never owned one since.

You know, this whole Toyota mess would be a non-issue if those people drove a manual transmission. Throttle stuck? Just push in the clutch! (Of course, even with an automatic these people should just be able to put it in neutral and be fine, but that's another rant....)
