They are in the sense that they need to be picky about the cars they drive.

I've been using a manual transmission ever since I took my driver's license 10 years ago. At first I also drove a shitty car ... gears wouldn't shift unless you knew how to touch the gearstick :)

Now I can drive just about anything, with no accommodations necessary. Changing gears is also in my reflex and it doesn't bother me ... I just don't think about it. I can also eat a sandwich or talk to the phone with no hands-free while driving, although that's considered a bad practice that's also illegal :)
