In most cars, if you have the option, you go for the manual, right? Well, not always. The IS300 is a prime case, they only were going to sell it with an automatic at first (with a pseudo-paddle shift mode), but enthusiasts forced them to add a manual a year later. The only problem is that the manual they put in it was, according to some, a "truck transmission", and according to almost all, not great. The clutch was vague, the shift action was notchy, and it couldn't handle any power additions without breaking. So, what other cars should be had without their stock manuals?
