|I think someone has already posted a link but I forgot on which topic. I'm not a 100% sure though.|
I have the link for the manual but when I try to post it in here it thinks I am posting spam and messes up the URL. I can't upload it either because it's like 32 megs. Ummm...
Let me try this...

Copy and paste that then take out all the spaces in the myhyundaiforum portion of the link and it should download for you.
|It worked for me thanks a lot oh willmore has already seen it......was about to say he will be happy.|
|Since I have the manual myself, I may tell you I love it, I find it smooth, precise, the clutch is not firm but not too hard, the only thing I don't like it's hard to shift in first and second in winter when the car is cold.|
*happydance* Yes, I've got it.
How cold are your winters? We're in central Indiana and winter gets just a little below 0F or, say, -20C.
I was originally trying to get my wife to go with the A/T since the lit says it has the same fuel economy as the M/T and should be about even as far as maintainance goes. She relearned how to drive a M/T on her Civic and, even with that abuse, it lasted until 120K(miles) when it got replaced with a rebuilt one. So, I'm not worried about her abusing the M/T in the new car. I understand many of the horror stories about people going through clutches in 40K(miles) tend to come from people who learned on them or just never really learned how to drive an M/T.
I drove the A/T at the dealer and it felt like any other A/T that I've driven. I'm not sure if that's because it was the show model and had been abused or if the A/T is no better than other A/Ts. I just remember thinking "Wow, I can shift way better than this." That said, my other M/T vehicles are a Honda CBR1100XX motorcycle and a 3 series BMW, so I'm used to really good M/Ts.
Can you tell me if the engagement point on the clutch is the same for all gears? On my wife's 1997 Civic, it's at a different point for first gear than it is for 2-5. The cluth feel is a bit soft, but it's not bad. I prefer a stiffer clutch.

Welcome to the forum!
If you prefer a stiffer clutch, you'd love my husband's '98 Accord (he has 2 Accords right now). That clutch feels like it's on an old, thick rusty spring. It's awful.
