Would it be possible? Estimated costs to do so?

I've been really wishing my car was manual lately so the idea came to mind. Just curious if it could be done.

It would be cheaper to trade your car in and bite the bullet on owing more for your car, honestly it would be a (IMO) complete waste of money just because there would be so much involved

Really wouldn't be possible. The tranny would fit in but the electronic controls (ECU TCM), electrical wiring, linkages and mounts would also have to be changed. Would take someone with knowledge of the car's computers to help get it to work. No dealer would tackle this job -- unless you own the dealership...or your Dad does...LoL! SXcuse13 is right: would be cheaper to trade in and get a manual model. All so you can exercise your left leg while driving...LoL!
