Need to borrow a stick shift Cage - May 13, 2008, 01:29 PM

Does anyone have an older vehicle that is a stick shift that I can borrow for a weekend? Sat/Sun or one of the days?

We will be getting delivery of a new vehicle soon that is a stick shift, and my wife doesnt know how to drive a manual.

I was hoping to borrow a car for her to practice with at a parking lot, and back neighborhood roads before getting a NEW car and ripping the transmission out.

Since it is your car, you can hang out the whole time and help with the lessons, etc. I'll buy you (beer, pizza, lunch) whatever is your fancy...

We live near woodbridge high school, so was going to use the Driver training track there for teaching her how to drive...

FYI, I tried looking up renting a car, but no one in the area rents cars that is a stick shift.

Thanks for the consideration.

Y'know, if I had my old Saturn, I'd teach her myself. (Spud, spouses should NOT teach spouses how to drive stick shifts, btw) I taught one of my gfs to drive a stick in that car. It had a clutch as gentle as a 250 Daddy has that car, now, though.

But my new car is a sports car with a tendency to squeal the tires if you're not careful. I won't even let my newly taught gf drive that thing.

She's not scared of the car. She's scared of your reaction to her grinding gears in your car.

TRUST me, get someone else to teach her.

Spud, call all the rental car companies in your area. You won't have to worry about your friend's transmission that way. That's how I learned -- rented a stick

That is what I was going to suggest. I taught my son how to drive his 2003 Jetta, which was covered bumper to bumper for 2 years. He could do whatever he wanted to in that time period. He can drive it perfectly now, even with MOM teaching him!!

I'm the worst teacher. I used to have a RHD integra and it was turbo. My xgf didn't know how to drive stick and worst part of it was that the steering wheel was on the right side. You should see me in the car teaching her how to drive the car in 10 minutes in rock creek parkway at 10pm at night.

All it takes is some yelling and OMG your going to get us killed, your over the yellow line.

RHD cars you need to compensate and remember you have moved almost 2 ft over.

Might be a good idea she doesn't know how to drive the new car, means you have it all for yourself!
