2006 Honda Pilot. Runs as good now as it did the day I drove it off the lot brand new.

I'm totally comfortable with automatic, but I kind of understand where you're coming from. I'm not comfortable with cruise control.

Whenever I drive an automatic, my foot instinctively looks for the clutch peddle.

I'll be the snob here and say it: manual is driving; automatic is just pointing the car.

But to be honest, sequential manual transmission is the best.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

I really like manual transmissions, I learned manual shifting around age 12 on a 1950 Ferguson TO-20 tractor and a 1954 GMC, no synchromesh. I taught a number of my classmates to drive a manual at the school driving range. When I bought a new car after I got married, I thought I would get a manual-shift, save $800, and teach my wife to drive it. What I learned from that experience was: I should have just bought an automatic.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

Two Toyotas, both bought new:

2003 Highlander with ~80k miles

2006 Camry Solara with ~29k miles

There's nowhere to go in Fresno unless you're going OUT of Fresno, so low mileage.

I assume all of my cars have high levels of intelligence, along with the ability to navigate streets without my input.
