Bottom line - it costs less to buy a home today than it ever has in modern history in the United States. People are just choosing to buy nicer and larger homes than they should be buying.

Not the fault of the costs of home ownership - the fault of people today making dumb ass financial decisions.
Well, that and states just love to have citizens buy expensive houses for the property tax revenues...
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
