Question Which car to teach MTX driving on.

Okay here is my problem...

My wife is arguing with me since I usually park behind her car and in order to get her car out of the driveway she has to ask me to move it or figure it out herself (which currently she is afraid to do since she doesn't know how to drive stick).

We got into a pretty big argument the other day over how stupid stick shift cars are - and what a waste of time they are to drive. For those of us who choose to drive only MTX cars - let me tell you I had to bite my tounge.

Anyway, here is my quandry...
I'm in the market for an STi or WRX this Feb, and I'd really like to get top dollar for my Contour SVT (no jokes please - at the time I bought it, it was a good car and there were no Subaru dealers near me in FL at the time).

So do I let her practice moving the car out of the driveway into the grass with the SVT (where she might do something mechanically and I'd have to pay for before trading it in) or do I let her experiment on the STi or WRX where it would still be covered under the initial bumper to bumper warranty?

Either way, I'd definately be scared of letting her take any car with MTX on the road to drive, especially with the way she likes to park nearest to the store - even if it means next to the cart return area.
