    since 1984 i have driven subies....4 w drive....standards....at 65 and retired....i dont need that much car....i ask my car dude to find me a cheap auto non 4 wheel drive....and he did.....a fucking hyundai sonata .....it does not have a back up camera....i was not sure how i would react to an auto....fucking love it...my left foot is so happy...i did have to get the windows tinted....even the sun roof got tinted....

    i have been cutting back on driving for a while now...i nearly caused a major collision in boone....a young person with great reflexes saved the day....i realized i need to slow down and drive like an old geezer...i really need that back up camera..this turning ones neck is not so handy

    One of the hardest things for people to do is to give up driving, be it for age or health. Up where I live, I belong to a group that volunteers to drive those whom for whatever reason, have stopped driving. In all cases, they have expressed the loss of the freedom driving represents. Good luck.

    Hyundia Sonata's are great cars that are fun to drive and very reliable. A lady friend of mine owns one and calls it her personal go-kart.

    Enjoy your new ride!! .... :thup:

    An automatic makes it easier for others to drive your vehicle.

    Always had manuals. Then for my last truck 04 Ford Ranger I got an automatic to let others drive. Just bought a used replacement that is a manual and I am missing the automatic - so much easier.
