This reviewer calling manual dumb just shows tht he was not born as a driver on manual.
He wasn't saying manual transmission's were dumb. All he was saying is that he doesn't agree with the whole "Save the manuals" for the sake of having option for manuals because more cars are being built with twin-clutch transmissions in mind. In fact, he says cars such as the Miata, FRS/BRZ should have manual transmissions because it works and having DCT wouldn't improve what a MT already does on those cars.
