I have made a couple of attempts to learn to drive manual (once back in Highschool - an old boyfriend tried to teach me, but it was a no go). And much more recently, I've been going out with my husband to parking lots to try and learn. Each time I stall, I get more and more frustrated.
So, the hell with it. I'm buying an automatic. Maybe someday I'll learn to drive manual, but for now, I need my independence and driving my OWN car is a great way to get it.
We spent one entire day last week visiting over 10 dealerships all around Gothenburg. I think we saw a total of 3 automatic cars. It almost became a joke by the end of the day. The eager salesman asking us what we were looking for...and as soon as we said automatic, you could see the disappointment in the salesman's face, since he wouldn't be selling us a car that day. It should come as no surprise that we have had much more luck on websites advertising private listings (similar to Craigslist).
