doing an excellent job. There's more than "not enthusiast" as trade-offs
to use auto transmission, that's why there are manufacturers trying to

But in the land where gas is cheaper than water, it really doesn't matter
if manual is better than autos. It's also why gas-gulping SUVs (and many
domestic boats) are selling well here...
