I love manual transmissions in sports cars not so much on a truck or suv. For me it's really fun to drive a sporty car with a stick, on a truck or Jeep it seems, well not so fun. For me it's probably because of the long throw and rather clunky feel of manual transmission in trucks, Jeeps etc. I test drove a Mazda speed3 and a VW GTI and man those things were fun to drive with a stick. Yesterday I test drove a 2012 Jeep Unlimited with a stick and I wasnt loving the manual transmission. There is nothing wrong with it, it just doesnt have that sporty feel. Of course the salesman is pushing the 12's and said they have really good deal available on them. I really like this Unlimited but I worried down the road I'm going to regret not going for an auto. For a really good deal I can probably deal with the stick but I'm on the fence about it. So my question is how many of you guys like auto vs stick or stick vs auto or bought on or the other and then regretted your purchase.
