As for all others, it's all laziness. Since I grew up near San Francisco, most I knew who were afraid of the hills and rolling back and burning the clutch.

If you think driving a stick is hard, look at this guy.

Ha. That's pretty lazy but good. I like it.


Here's "hard"

I didnít know they had cars with cable actuated throttles as late as 2006. I thought my 2000 MK4 Jetta 2.0 was one of the last ones. I liked the way the revs drop in this car.

Iíll have to keep an eye out for manual 2006 XRSís later on.

The xrs was the last Corolla in 05-06 with a throttle cable. I have yet to drive a DBW Mt. I can't adapt to iMT mode and rev match. With 20 plus years, don't care for it. It's nice tech, but not for me.

In the garage,

9th Gen Corolla XRS
2012 Mazda 5
