Given that I see this happening in the majority of cars I see during my commute, I would say your observation is more objective.
Then again you left of shaving, combing hair, brushing teeth...

Have you checked out the new 2.0T (or even the 1.5T) Accord with the manual? Mazdas are way better looking but the newest Accord is very roomy and plenty fast.

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/

2004 Mazda 6 Sport Wagon, 3.0L V6, 5MT, Steel Gray Metallic
Mods: Pinstripes removed, rear V6 emblem added

I'm not sure it is 80% in Japan. I think it is much less there.

I drove both 1.5 and 2.0 T 6MT Accords and felt a bit meh. Have to spin 'em up for power. The Mazda6 2.5T - bottom end torque and immediate availability of "grunt" reputedly - are markedly better i've heard - in day to day use.
