    hmmm, a “plugger” is a creature who doesn’t like creature comforts.

    It’s hard to go without AC here in So Cal…When I’d be in bumper to bumper traffic in 100 deg heat, with someone with a diesel gas burner in front of me…you just can’t have your windows open…

    I’d driven cabs where running the AC made the engine heat up. Not as much of a problem when you were moving… but when you had to sit in a line of traffic…

    Don’t want AC? Just don’t turn on the AC!

    For some others, besides pluggers, that seems to include turn signals.

    Then why pay extra for it.

    Makes no sense, even for a plugger, to suffer from the heat.

    Some pluggers HAVE to use A/C. Talking about those who are allergic to things like bees.

    Friend of mine who was with the Coast Guard bought a car while he was stationed on Guam. It didn’t have A/C OR a heater.

    1) A plugger lives in a rural utopia where there are no traffic jams to be stuck in; why does a plugger need a new car, anyway don’t they all drive filthy pickup trucks? 2) How do you “get a car w/o AC”? Like it’s an option? Don’t vehicles COME with AC? 3) Pluggers don’t use AC because…they like to sweat? They’re animals with fur coats who…don’t need AC? They are sweaty smelly animals?

    So basically pluggers are both stupid and smelly. This one just illustrates how very stupid and smelly.

    Had a sales person tell me they could not order a car with a manual transmission. I asked for it in writing that they could not sell me a car with standard equipment on it and he got very confused. I even pointed this out on one of the cars’ sticker. He was baffled. Bought the car elsewhere.

    AC is for weenies.

    My first car came without a radio or heater. It had “radio delete” and “heater delete” as an option on the window sticker. Of course, the car companies don’t make as much money if they can’t sell you something you don’t want…..

    Biased and narrow-minded much, Lassie1?

    Porsche is discontinuing manual transmissions.

    The PDK 7-speed (automatic that can be manually shifted if you like) will be the default or standard transmission.

    Manual transmission will be available as an option for a limited time.
