I learned that there are some roads I just avoid... or park and walk. SF is not car friendly in general. But yes, I would totally own an automatic if I had to drive everyday!
likely i'll be moving to SF in the next year. I've been scoping out the city to see if it was 6MT friendly and I agree. You basicallyjus tneed to know the roads to avoid and that's my plan. At times all it takes is driving 3 -5 blocks over and it makes all the difference in steepness of a hill.
