I remember trying to drive a manual when I was about 16-18 years old up a hill. It was horrific. I had terrible anxiety and I didn't know what I was doing and my teacher sucked. I just remember being terrified to turn the engine off and go through the steps above. I remember envisioning the car sliding down the hill and exploding. Regardless, I will take the tips I learned here today, should I ever drive a manual transmission again.
