I agree with that statement, and because of that, I ordered my first Wrangler with a manual trans (well, I guess, technically, I simply didn't order the auto option).
I love manuals. But that seems to be a unique taste.
I typically don't have any problems selling my old vehicles. I take really good care of them, and I find a buyer within days, if not hours, after putting them up for sale.
Not so my first Wrangler. Even though my ad stated pretty clearly that it had a manual trans, everyone who came to look acted so surprised when they noticed the stick, and simply walked away. It look me months to sell it.
It took that long to find a buyer who loved manuals too, and had no problem with a "loaded up" Wrangler with a manual trans.
I learned my lesson. My current Wrangler has an auto trans.
