AITA for only buying cars with a manual transmission?
Throwaway because friends know my main.
So, I am a bit of a car nut, I love cars and working on them. I am a firm believer in the three pedal system and shifting your own gears. I have 2 cars, a VW GTi and a NA Miata, both stick shift and I love driving both of them. The GTi is my daily driver, while the Miata is my nice weather car (I live in the PNW, which means 4 months lol).
I was looking to get another car with a 4WD and a high clearance so that I can take it to some of the tough to access trailheads which my other 2 cars would make it a challenge to go to, plus have an ability to go somewhere in the mountains if needed. Because, I only want stick shifts, I was looking to either a used Jeep or maybe the new Bronco and they meet my criteria nicely.
I mentioned it to my girlfriend that I might be looking into buying a jeep or a bronco and she also agreed they are a good choice especially when we want to go skiing one camping and she's excited to drive it. Now, my girlfriend doesn't know hoot drive a manual, so I gently told her, I chose one of those two because they come in a manual and I have no plans to buy an automatic.
Well, she lost it and told me that I am excluding her and why do I need 3 cars which nobody else can drive and told me to get with the times. I told her, I wasn't asking for her permission what to do with my money, and she is welcome to drive any of my cars and it's not my fault she doesn't want to learn (I have offered to teach her many times).
Well, she's giving me the cold shoulder after that, and complained to some of our common friends and most of them started telling me that while I am not wrong in saying I can do what I want I am technically excluding her, and would it be that bad to buy a car she can also drive? I tried to say that I am happy to teach her how to drive my cars but she doesn't want to learn had little effect saying learning a manual is not easy and can be dangerous (I think that's utter crap, it's safer as you are more engaged and won't get distracted by cellphones or other things).
So, AITA for planning to buy only manual cars?
EDIT: Want to add one more note, she has her own car, it's a nice Camry and relatively new and I believe will outlast us all till the heat death of the universe lol.
EDIT 2: Wow, thank you everyone for your replies and insights. I will try to reply to all of you, but here's the INFO to some of the questions asked by people. I'll try and talk to her about this again and understand what's going on.
We've been together 5 years, we don't live together as we work in different cities (about 2 hours drive). But, we are always together over the weekend, one of us drives down Friday afternoon and leaves Monday morning. Sometimes, we take Friday as WFH and leave Thursday evening as well. We both are equivalent high income earners. We put 30% of our income into a joint account for our common/together expenses (restaurants, trips etc.) and have a joint high rewards credit card which we use only when both are together and pay it off in full each month from the joint account. There is more than enough in the joint account to cover monthly expenses. The other 70% is our money and it goes to our individual expenses (rent, bills etc + "play" money) and we don't monitor what the other person does with it.
We like our situation for now, as neither of us can easily relocate especially with 2020 being as it is. We don't plan on having kids, and we both don't feel home ownership is a good idea when we are more flexible renting and not worrying about things to fix around the house.
