      Same here! (Except 2 cars that didn't have a manual option, but I wanted to try them anyway.)

      Was snow your main reason for picking manual? Can you explain?

      I voted Manual since that's what I have. Usually buy Manual in a small car since I believe little engines with A/C. Auto./Power Accessories just get the life sucked out of the motor. I prefer two legged driving anyway, since my left leg needs more exercise.

      Mine is an Auto, see "Garage" for the current and previous car.

      As one gets older, creature comforts like Auto-Trans and Air-Con become more important in a hot climate.

      I bought my '06 Aveo new - one of the big reasons is that I wanted a manual. I've got 120k miles on it right now, and it still runs great. I think manual works better on the smaller cars, so that you can get better control in the mountains. Aveos don't have that much power, I had to come over Vail Pass in 3rd gear last week on my way back from the west coast. And it's so much easier coming down the long descents in gear, rather than having to nurse the brakes.

      Lucky Bugger - I suppose it's sunny & warm & you're allowed to drink cold beer on the beach! (Not that I'm jealous or anything)

      Mine is manual. Here in Portugal, most of cars are manual. I think there wasn't automatic option when I bought the car.

      Mine is automatic but I genuinely prefer a manual. Since I bought my car to from a family member to help them out I didn't get to choose.

      Manual Aveo. I live in Croatia. Automatic isn't such an often thing in Europe.

      results so far...

      ^amoretto - Yes, transmission choice is a big difference between Europe & North America. Do you have to have a separate licence to drive manual, like the U.K.?

      Well, things have certainly changed in this poll. Manual has taken the lead:
