RE: Standard or Auto
manual-- the problem with them being that now they are reserved for bottom of the bucket econocars or high end luxury cars.
and dont go on some bullshit tangent that a c class with a v6/5 speed at 30 large is an entry level car.
i want a nice car with a heavy body and a 5 speed, preferably a coupe. something like a mustang, but not a mustang. i'd love a 3.5 v6 chrysler 300/magnum/charger with a manual, but if they make it, itll be in the sr/t 8 version, wont it?
i like the neon because its a manual, it has a modicum of go fast in it and it was very affordable with numerous(fully optioned for 14k-- sunroof, premium radio, all power, trim upgrades)options.
with the new calibre, one can only get a manual if they opt for the weakest engine and lowest of trim levels. still 14k, but for that you get a seat like sandpaper, hubcaps and cranks for the windows. that interests me very little.
hell, i'd take a manual grand prix coupe(this is how much i want a decent sized manual coupe) if they made it.
