Thank you for your suggestion . I think my wife is the kind of person that is always happy with what she has , she MAYBE interested in learning how to drive a manual car but she is definitely not interested in taking a second driving test I am not sure about the criteria to obtain the licence in the US and Canada but over here if I have a manual driver licence I can drive both manual and AT cars, but I only have the licence for AT car , meant I only took the driving test on an AT car I am not allowed to drive a manual car. If I want to upgrade my licence to MT I have to take a second driving test in a manual car. To be honest I think it's safer for my wife to drive with both her hands on the steering wheel at all timeI was going to ask you why not just get a MT Corolla. You can always teach you wife to drive a MT. I taught all 3 of my daughters and they love it. My wife already knew how to drive a MT when I met her.
