    A lot of people do actually. Not as much as international countries of course, but a lot of people in the US know how to (and prefer) to drive standard.

    Over time that number should decline though as fewer manual options are available and as younger drivers simply just drive automatics.

    Most people know how to drive manual because it's better. Although a lot of americans just don't like driving them in traffic and prefer automatics

    There's that...and the fact that some of the countries drive on the other side of the road...with their steering wheel on the other side of the car. That too.

    And the fact that most 'Mericans don't spend as much time outside of their country as others.

    'Murrica...fuck y'all that's why.

    I miss driving standard cars.

    Good tip. Lock your doors. Then you shit has a less chance of getting stolen. Simple.

    I can't tell you how many cases I get of people who had their cars stolen. I always ask three questions.
    1. Were the keys in the car?
    2. Was the car running?
    3. Were the doors unlocked?

    If you answer "yes" to any of these, then it's your own damn fault.

    never learned manual. that's a lie. i did and can do it just not well. need like a week of practice to get shifting proper and not stalling on hills.

    i don't like driving manual because 1) it doesn't make a difference (it's not really better in any way, shape or form) and 2) i do too much other shit to have to shift too.

    In some cases manuals used to be cheaper than automatics as well. Aren't they more fuel efficient as well?

    so do i. just because you can shift down or up at whim doesn't mean you have any more control than the transmission that does it faster and cleaner than a human.

    but, if you want to say you do, i have my manual version in the bmw that lets me shift at will. gives me better acceleration cuz i can shift at 6,800 instead of 3,500, but aside from that...eh.
