there are such things as new(ish) cars with manual transmissions AND the latest in safety driving aids (BSW, Lane-keeping assist, back-up cameras etc?) I look, but cannot find…
I love these assists in my Forester but yearn for a 3-pedal manual. My wife’s Outback has paddles, an abomination…
I have a 17’ Outback, moved from an 01’ Outback. Most are now installing CVT’s and I feel the same way, hate the shifters… but I believe you can still get a Subie in MT. Did you call/ask?
Do you know about this site? Might check there: https://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/

Have you looked at Mazda.
Ya might have to go to a smaller car than you’d like to still get a manual ?
On a related note, I think the manual transmission is becoming the best anti-theft device out there. I took my car to the dealership the other day and had to wait 45 min while they looked for someone who could drive it.

Please tell me this is just a funny!
This was the gist of my earlier post:
It was an SNL skit made to look like a slick car heist movie with a million dollar car but the joke is that the thief doesn’t know how to drive stick. “Why is there a third peddle?”
My kids are 25 and neither they nor their friends have ever seen a stick shift. I started driving a stick shift about their age when I found a good deal on a used car and asked my then boyfriend to test drive it for me. A week later it felt natural. Loved my 88 prelude but had to sell it when I had kids. The back seat was sort of imaginary as it touched the front seat…
