Car troubles

Postby Dreamless on Sun Mar 18, 2001 4:30 am

but hang in there: it's so much better when you're used to it.<P>well, not quite. i won't try to pretend it gives me better gas mileage, or even really better acceleration; i'm just one of those people who always has to be doing something with his hands, and the transmission fills that role admirably--keeps me busy.<P>although there are chunks of sf that make me regret the choice.<P>and while it's not much fun getting the car fixed up, it's neat when you get it back and it's that much closer to new...

My dad told me once, and I think it is true: a manual transmission breaks more often than an automatic, but it is much cheaper to have it repaired when it does break.

I too have an Acura, an 89' Integra. She's actually a very good car, but as a novice driver the manual transmission still scares the crap out of me. The only thing I'm capable of doing without stalling out is turning on the windshield wipers.

I sympatize with the car situation. I drive an '86 Acura Legend and there's always something giving me trouble.<P>Before that, I drove a Volvo. Damn things are nigh invincible. I guess it's a testement to my driving skills that I managed to total one <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">
