How many Fortes are made like mine? I presume not many are shipped over here with the 6 speed manual due to the hatred in this country of manual transmissions.

When we ordered our first Fortes there was an error in the order codes, or something like that, and we ended up with almost 100% manual cars. Had at least a half-dozen SX sedan stick shifts sitting on the lot all summer long, and finally we're down to the last one. They are out there... lurking...

I would have gone with a stick, but I'm getting lazy in my older age... it's just not as 'fun' anymore.

Local dealer has a number of manual cars on the lot...sold most of the auto cars. It's not about "hating" manuals...people are opting for comfort and ease of driving...besides, it appears to be a lot easier texting with the auto than with the manual considering how many people I see on the cell phone while driving...LoL!
