I can certainly teach you. Just about every dang car I owned until I was 35 was a 3 pedler.No sir, I have an automatic. I'm just curious to learn.
Funny thing is, I taught someone the basics of how to drive a manual in about 15 minutes just doing a test drive.You'll probably be able to find someone that can teach you far more easily than you will be able to find a car with a manual transmission.
I'm in my mid-30s and have never been exposed to a manual transmission. I've searched the Denver, Colorado area for training and haven't found anything.
Is there anyone in the area that would be willing to volunteer their time and car to teach me the basics? I'd be happy to trade a lunch or six-pack for your effort.
I'm a good driver. 2010 Outback owner.

One problem...I only have 5EATs. So...No car.
Different strokes for different folks... I drove truck for nearly 20 years, and loved driving my manual tranny personal vehicles, too. :grin2: the car and the pickup both had manual trannies.I have the opposite perspective. I deal with 18 forward and 4 reverse gears in a semi truck all week long. I loathe having a stick in my personal vehicles. Part of that stems from the fact that shifting a heavy commercial truck is a whole different experience that shifting a trans in a small vehicle. While I grew up with manual personal vehicles, it requires a different technique to shift a heavy commercial truck, and all driving a manual car does is throw off my rhythm when I get back in the semi. Either way, the last thing I want to do when I drive my pickup or car is manual shift it.
I can see some preferring a manual trans. To them, go for it.
