Good news folks.. the 2002 Camry V6 wont be available w/a 5spd manual or any manual for that matter.. they do offer however, an Intellegent 4speed.. i dunno how it works or what it looks like but.. no 5spd for the V6
I think its due to the market of that vehicle. They usually look at it as "automatic is standard" which a family would view as better. When I was shopping for a car, a bunch of sales reps. quoted that line to me "the altima doesn't have auto standard". Which is stupid, but again, "demand and supply"
