hhaha someone reassure me just incase i am stuck with an auto... this review says QUOTE
The transmission gearing in the automatic that we drove for this test is wholly unsuitable for bigtime acceleration, with an overall ratio of just over 10:1 (the first-gear ratio times the axle ratio), while the manual is almost 50 percent lower, almost 15:1, for maximum acceleration in first gear[/b]

I finally test drove an automatic today and I like the 5 speed so much better.

i test drove both before we bought the A/T. the difference for me wasnt noticeable enough to justify having to shift all over town and thru traffic. especially because my gf often drives also. i always have my 'vic to snick thru gears in. try not to get stuck on reading every little review for the car, your own is the one that counts

Since you got the Automatic, you'll be receiving a whopping one mile bonus per gallon compared to a Manual, heh.
