2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
The 6 speed semi-automatic transmission takes a little time to become instinctive. There were many bad shifts the first week or two, but it's truly a godsend in bad traffic. The car is fun, responsive, easy on gas. I can drop the top in less than a minute sitting at a redlight. If you need to haul junk around don't buy this car. There is no trunk.
It has a shifter in the center console between the seats, as well as, shifter buttons on the steering wheel.
