Guess I should hang on to my '02 Chevy 4x4 p/u with 5 speed manual then. I love to drive a stick. When my oldest daughter was 16, I got a used '94 ranger w/ stick specifically so she would learn to drive one. She tried it, stalled it a few times, started crying and stomped off. I parked it at the curb and said "there's your wheels" Couple of days later, I see her get in and jerk down the street. She loved it after that. When she moved on, I bought the '02 used for the next 2 daughters to learn on. They love sticks now as well. When they bought a new chevy Cruze a year ago, they chose the manual trans. One of the reasons is that it keeps others from wanting to borrow their car as almost all of their friends can't drive sticks. BTW, they "name" their vehicles. The '02 Chevy is "Cheryl", the Cruze is "Charlotte". To me, it's "the truck".

Way to go..

Daughters have a wa about them, but they do work their way into your line of sight,

I too, had difficulty with them getting used to a stick-shift, but , today, they both are thankful that I spent the time.

Hope you and yours are well.
