I'm thinking that the Mx6 you rented had the lovely slushbox in it. Was it
the V6? I too rented a 626 (4 door cousin) in SF with 4 banger and
slushbox. I've been in the manual 4 banger before and definitely notice the
difference. The slush is slow to respond and takes A LOT out of the 4
banger. It might work better with the v6 but unless one has driven the
manual version of the Mx6, don't knock it off the list yet. . .

Now why don't we get manual trannies in our rental fleet like the Europeans. :-(
