Is an automatic but it can also shift like a manual vehicle. It kind freaked me out today because I have never seen one like that. Anyone else ever get a car like that. dh likes it. Me I will just drive it like automatic. I can't drive a stick

I owned a stick at one point and HATED it. It was a sport car and I was in my 20s. I had to drive the thing for about 3 years before I could get out of the lease or trade it in (too long ago...don't remember), but seriously...that was 3 years of hell. The worst was when I would have to brake at a stoplight on a hill (which in my town was about every stoplight lol)...I would roll back a damn 50 feet before I could get it going forward. SO many almost collisions.

My dh knows how. He was supposed to show me but never did. But the stick he used to have his car was supped up so he said he wouldn't show me in that one and we haven't owned one since.
My mom says she like it better than a automatic.

How or why did you have a lease on a vehicle that you didn't like? Did someone else pick it out for you?

I bought (or leased...again...forever ago) with my husband...he loved it. I was driving our old car. About three months after getting the car, we split because he was cheating. I had the bigger income and the car was in my name and our older car had been in his name...so that's how the judge split them. Sucked!

Ugh!!! So every time you drove the car hating every minute of it, you were probably trying not to think of the ex hubby. Sorry, I made you relive that to tell me the story.
