Most of the Road Test Reports said that the Altima SE 2002's stick shift gearbox was not smooth, sticky, not refine and grind gear easily. Reports recommended automatic transmission with traction control for Altima SE 2002 instead of manual transmission. My preference is to buy a stick shift car. Owners of Altima SE 2002 with manual transmission, please advise your experience on your daily driving exprience. Thanks.
