Re: Swop Reverse and Drive Positions on the Stick Shift

how can someone say what a nightmare if someone unfamiliar gets in the car when there's five or six different ways to do it now not counting electric cars I don't see any nightmare.

I can tell you what this is you are either used to it this way or you want it this way so you fabricate a tale of gloom and doom to justify keeping it this way when in fact you are the exception not the norm

Yup, that is why we call them a standard like it or hate it.

Hmm... I was considering changing the steering so that you turn the wheel left to go right. I figure it would make the vehicle difficult to steal. :lol:

Just got my 2013 Leaf. Having a tuff time with the shifter. Have to look at dash all the time to see which gear I am in. Almost went through my garage.

I would agree - it was not natural from the start, but as anything, I got used to it after a few weeks.
