CRD with a Standard Transmission
I was thinking about why the CRD is not offered with a standard? Could it be the torque and the requirement of a heavy clutch that would require alot of pedal effort. I have 2 inline diesels, they both take off with out ever touching the accelerator, this includes going up a hill. I once had a 99 powerjoke with a standard, the clutch depressor fork broke, then later the clutch exploded. Well just my thoughts on why we cant get a CRD with a standard.

Remember, they only planned on selling 5k of these things in the USA. The cost of doing all the federally-required testing for both the automatic and stick-shift versions was probably too much for such a low production run. It's one thing to do the testing for a $ 60k sports car, but for a $ 25k SUV where they're loosing money on each one?
Plus, you guys gotta remember that people who prefer stick shifts are in the minority in this country Makes it more likely that a automatic version will sell better than the manual version for the limited production run.
