      I wish you would do a episode about those high maintenance rubber band CVT transmission and when to change the oil and maybe how to fix them.

      I wish my 2008 Ford Edge came with a standard transmission....although...I would probably drive it a little harder than with the automatic transmission! Even the automatic transmission has a lot of pickup though.

      I'm glad I own a 1991 Honda Accord XE coupe with a stick shift? Remember the "three on a tree" ? That's all I drove earlier in life, until my 1997 Fiat 1800. That one had a shifter on the floor, like my high beam switch. I'll be dead soon, so I'm glad I spent most of my life driving "real" cars. Hope you enjoy the climate changes.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but along with the Corvette, the new Mustang Shelby GT500 is only available with a dual-clutch automatic transmission. There are some real advantages to a dual-clutch automatic (DSG). The first is lightning quick shifts measured in milliseconds. The second, no disruption of power. With a manual, you need to let off the gas to shift. With a DSG, one clutch engages as another disengages, leading to a continuous flow of power.

                  In the UK, its exact the opposite. Also you can't drive a manual if you have a licence for Automatic. And people take 20 to 40 freaking lessons to learn a manual to get their licence.

                        AS soon as 5 and 6 speed automatic transmissions came out the desirability of a manual transmission dropped considerably. If all I had to chose from were 3 and 4 speed automatics I would go for a stick shift in a heartbeat.

                          Dad is buying one of these as a last car before he passes. We were watching videos of this vette on the track, amazing to say the least. It destroyed so many more expensive cars in attributes. Longevity? 85k? I told him go old school but hes set on this one. It will cost him his condo in NM.

                              Got to be manual. Love being involved and a "part" of the car. Also, being able to hold gears for longer, especially driving a diesel van to blast it up to speed quicker.

If 99% of cars are automatic then only 1% of people care about Manuel transmissions in 2019.

                                          Strong contrast between the AutoVette vs the late Dodge Viper which ONLY came in standard.

                                                A corvette is whatever Chevy decides it is. You’re anti GM bias has been obvious for a while.

The whole thing must rattle and fall apart in 15 years if neglected. Corvette character... same as Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Range Rover etc etc .. except Lexus and Toyota :)

                                                              better start with other MFG's before chevy.. This would be the first time they didn't have stick. Rumor has it their might be a special edition with it. It is a real vette. Lets be real, I love sticks, two of my current cars are stick but chevy had to adjust and adapt. Front engine , 800+ hp wouldn't be put to the ground and the zero to 60 was limited. Whether weight in front instead of back or the speed of an paddle, it was going to go bye bye. The cars you stated with sticks aren't in the same boat as say the vette, Porsche, Ferrari (viper is gone) etc

One reason for avoiding putting a stick in the new Corvette is probably the fact that it's difficult to engineer a nice feeling shift linkage if it has to go all the way around the motor to get to the transmission.

I’m hoping it will last me another 50,000 + with no real problems if I keep up on maintenance... I love the car but I’m worried about the transmission etc. it has slipped but only twice in the past 8 months, hope that’s somewhat normal
