my gf's first car was a stick.

most of my gfs drove sticks. and could parallel park.

saturn dealerships will teach them how to drive a stick if you look like a customer.

My wife drives an '06 GTi 6 speed, before that was an '03 VR6 GTi 6 speed, '01 Wolfsburg 5 speed, you get the picture.

When the '06 came out, I told her about the DSG trans, how all the magazines raved about it, and suggested she at least test drive one. No dice, she wanted something with a clutch.

When I first met my girlfriend she said she won't drive an automatic and won't date anybody that drives an automatic.

Samnavy,

You by any chance on the mazdas247 forum?
I've got a login there, but never use it except for the occasional bit of homework or claffifieds. I hit up Mazda6Club in the Mazdaspeed6 forum a couple times a week to make sure I'm not missing anything. I go to RX7 club once a week to check the classifieds.

She can, but really doesn't like it. Has a problem making coffee...
I'd rather that she dive on someone elses stick

Bought my wife a MS3 and she's good at driving it... she's always been quite the sporty girl so it wasn't too hard to get her out of her 285HP Volvo and into something new and more nimble. So now that she's got a new car, her 2nd ever new ride, she's too nervous to drive it in traffic or alone. So she steals my turboed miata for her runs around town and I'm stuck with the MS3 most of the time... not that I am bitchin tho!

Cheers,
Prospero

meh......late-comers.....

Check post #13...... I voted yes cuz she does.

Taught the wife and the daughter to drive a stick in my old 91 toyota pickup in an open parking lot. Still can't remember why I taught the wife but I taught the daughter so if she was ever stuck someplace and the only way home was to drive a manual transmission, she would know how to do it.
