I disagree. I hate auto's. I prefer the control of a manual as well as the better fuel economy. Even if you put $10k into an auto I would prefer a manual, but that is me.If you build the auto right you'll never go back to a manual. I've had both and for day to day driving the auto is my choice. Some like the manual's, it's a matter of drivers likes and dislikes.
That's what I meant.I Didn't know the 5speeds lost reverse, I thought losing 5th was the common problem.
