Is the automatic tc hard to change into drive? I've never driven an automatic like the tc's before. All the automatics I have, to put the car in drive, just pull straight down on the gear stick.

No, it's not hard to get into drive. The shifter is funny looking, but it's easy to get used to.

^^ seconds that motion

Also, yea I have an automagic and I love it alot, I do sometimes miss the manual transmission but you know I get over it quickly because when I am on the phone, eating, yelling out the window, turning w/ blinker it does get hard to drive with a manual.

On a trip to Florida a few weeks ago, my idiot friend knocked it into 3rd and drove 250 miles at 75 MPH like that...

When I brought the car home from the dealership for the first time I had it in 3rd on I-75 for awhile until I realized it was revving a bit high.

When I had a slushbox I used the shifter for the following things:
- put it in 3rd when I was ready to pass somebody
- put it in 2nd (or even L) on mountain roads going downhill.
- put it in R to go backwards

Just put it in D for 'dattaway' !! --------------->

Seriously though, the transmmission should be able to handle any forward movement in just Drive. I've found the throttle response to be a bit faster in the lower gears since it doesn't have to downshift for quicker acceleration.

In slower traffic, I will put it in 2 otherwise the car wants to just keep moving forward at whatever speed rather than slowing down when I pull my foot off the gas.
