Re: I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

That's not OP. This is page 2. It reads like a bot post...Some odd linguistics ("cannot find true buyer," "mop my cotton sheet," "i stuck with previous one..."), non sequitur with the rest of the topic, and involving a BMW. Probably will come back and add some SEO links to the post or profile after...

Re: Modern Amish Transportation

Interesting article in Car & Drive about Amish Buggies. They actually have a dashboard and battary and a choice of drum or disc brakes. The brakes are so the buggy won't run over the horse after you pull the reins to stop. Link here: http://blog.caranddriver.com/the-surprisingly-modern-tech-inside-...

Re: A standard is standard on this new (revived) model

ahh, that makes more sense. the thought of a manuel ranger brings back memories of learning to shift on dad's old 84 ranger; rust, backfires and all. then he later had a 90 or so F250 with the inline 6 and granny gear. replaced that with a mid-2000s gmc sierra V8 with the backseats and a cap and aut...

It talks about the Ranger's engine. Ranger itself is not yet in on the party, but may be when it moves to be more heavily based on the Bronco for the next gen.
ahh, gotcha :)

Re: My 'Runner

What up my dudes. Been a long time since I've been on this site, and many of you know that I no longer own a manual vehicle. Additionally, I've recently sold my (manual) motorcycle that I've had for 4 years, so I officially have no manual gas-powered vehicle in my home. The bike money is for a sled...

Re: A standard is standard on this new (revived) model

as IMBoring pointed out, the 1st gear is a creeper gear, probably like in the new Bronco. Not sure if that's their way of skipping having a low range transfer case, nor if it's a good substitute. eye remember them having the 5 speeds with the 1st gear semi-creeper back inn the 90s, but i believe th...

Re: Bk's new car

if you don’t feel the shifter vibrating while the engine is running, it’s usually a cable linkage shifter, at least in my experience. My 94 Civic had a rod linkage and you could feel it, especially with the shifter in neutral. Based on that interesting and likely accurate observation I think the la...

Re: A standard is standard on this new (revived) model

Wonder what the extra cost for an automatic is? Will it deter people from switching up? All good, but I like the good-old-days of 4-speed and even 3-speed manuals. With 7 gears you might start thinking you are driving a big rig. Is the engine that under powered that they have to have all those gear...

I will refer to potownrob's post re: a cable shifter as I don't know. Many 7th gen and even 6th gen Accords are likely daily drivers as many are still on the road. if you don’t feel the shifter vibrating while the engine is running, it’s usually a cable linkage shifter, at least in my experience.
