My wife drives manual and we both prefer cloth, win-win!
Not that it matters anyway, she has driven my car once, just to try it out, and that's probably the last time she'll drive it. She has her own car.
I'm with the others in here, manual, or no sale.
I had a Lexus ES350 for a while, the only automatic I've ever had, nice car, but soooo boring. I thought I was ready for a lazy, comfortable, automatic vehicle, don't know what I was thinking. Had a kid on the way, the Lexus rear seat didn't fold down, so I traded it for the Impreza and put a bunch of cash in the bank for a rainy day. The Lexus had almost double the horsepower of the Impreza, yet the Impreza is 100 times more fun to drive IMO.
