Post Are we getting the "manu-matic" transmission?

You know the Semi-automatic transmission as seen in CAR magazine?

Hey Kostamojen, learn how. Once you get the hang of it you will never want to drive anything but. Try to find someone to teach you. Once you get over the fear factor it is actually pretty easy. Subarus are a little harder to learn in since the clutch usually engages fairly early. If you know anyone who has a stock 94-98 Jetta GL those would be easy to learn in since the clutch doesn't engage till it is all the way out. It's pretty hard to kill that way. Just keep your foot on the gas and you'll be ok. Oh and learn in an empty parking lot not on the road.

Next time you purchase a car, get a manual. There's no point in getting a slush box, they take a good chunk of the fun out of driving.

The semi auto thing, kinda "cool" gimick, but I wouldn't want it. I would miss my clutch too much.

Thumbs up

i have to agree... manuals are the best.

i pretty much learned on my rs (had a 1 hour tune-up on a 88 honda right before we went to pick it up my new subie). i don't recomend learning on a $20K car but i don't regret getting mine.

take it from me (whatever thats worth) the manuals really lets you control the car so much better, its really hard to compare it to the auto.
