Buy a manual or the auto shifter. If you mean the shifter I would get one to learn the timing

I meant a manual car. They're fun to drive. Just fits a sports car. Only auto id drive is for a serious drag car. You'll get frustrated but it takes practice and time to learn. Took me a week of driving one a few miles a night. Practice on stops signs and lights so you can learn the timing on a hill too. You need some roll back room until you learn how to do it perfectly everytime. Dont get mad when you stall which you will. Just hang in there its worth knowing how to drive one

That's an automatic shifter... all it does is ratchet forward and back, it will not teach you how to drive a manual not to mention most of the learning curve of a manual is working the clutch.

Honestly the only way to learn a stick is to practice on one.

Manual is easy peasy

My first car was a stick, but i didnt give a ***** when i bought it one friday afternoon. Put 100miles over the weekend in an empty parking lot, aced the DMV test on monday. Like scotty says, there's no better substitute for hands-on experience. Yeah you'll stall it, repeatedly. Even when you get it nailed down and drive a stick for many moons, you will inevitably stall it still. My count is 3x since i bought my pony late last year lol, and it had been nearly 17 years between manual trans cars for me.

You can also "practice" shifting with the car off, getting used to the mechanics of hand/foot simpatico... A stick is very much a "drive by feel" thing, but not too terribly difficult to master.

My Parents forced me to learn on a stick, said it was a life skill that too many ppl don't learn. I'm very glad they did and my first car was a 1988 Bronco II 4x4. I loved that thing, red cloth interior and terrible plastic "woodgrain" trim and all.

Yeah I figured for a first car. Those DSM Eclipses/Talons were EVERYWHERE when I was in high school... You couldn't go 5 minutes without seeing multiples. Even the occasional Plymouth Laser sighting, dude at my HS had a pretty nice looking blue one.
