I think almost every review has said something that goes directly against what a lot of the other reviews have said.
Well it's more than just some random dude. He does write for a legit website/blog. Blogs are here to stay. A few years ago people would've said the same things about Jalopnik and Autoblog but now they're considered reputable sources.
As the difference between manual and Auto in short auto i dont feel like i have full controll but manuel i feel like i have full controll of the vehicle as though the car is part of me like i am the missing ingredient to the equation.......
