Not only does my wife prefer a stick. She drives her 101 as her daily driver during the summer.




Yes that's our 2 year old riding shot gun with mommy

Unfortunately my wife loves driving a manual. I haven't been able to drive my ALFA in years. She always finds an excuse to drive it.

The wife knew how to drive manual before we met. It is handy when she has to drive the drunk home. Most of the vehicles we have had are manual, but we also have a D2 now.

My 17 and 19 year old daughters were required to learn to drive on manual, but most of their friends cannot. That prevents the friends from driving my car. The girls have both driven the D90 several times.

Sure can, like a champ. In fact, bought here a Volvo C30 this past fall and she wouldn't budge on the manual. Fun little T5 stick shift.

For sure. My wife grew up on Kauai driving her father's manual trucks. She used to drive the D90 quite frequently, but now that we have moved back to NJ she limits her Defender driving to the summer months.
