    I was reading on a GM truck forum that many owners were having problems with the truck version of the 8 speed. Hopefully GM has figured it out.

    It's definitely a sad day. At least Porsche is still offering manual transmissions.

    Yeah, I was only on my first cup of coffee and didn't read the whole thread title.

    Edit: Let's not forget how easily this could be true these days. That's what's really sad.

    Self driving cars will be here soon and the transmissions won't matter. I'll be too busy napping.

    Now the question is, are stick drivers better driver (we all know the answer to that). We will have a generation of lazy distracted drivers on our hands, hence self driving cars on the way JOHNNY CAB is comming.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?
