Although I prefer a manual shifting system, both of my current vehicles are automatics, as the wife never got the handle of shifting.

Automatic can actually be a lot better than manual in terms of performance, but it also costs a lot more to improve it to the same degree. If I had $ sure, but who has money these days?

I've had both automatic and manual; I prefer manual because it's more fun, and it also helps to counteract that problem I tend to experience of falling asleep while I'm driving.  Not really a help with highway driving but after work I would even tend to fall asleep in traffic, so having to shift is a plus for wakefulness.

I'm thinking if I get another car I might like to try out a CVT (continuously variable transmission) though.  Sounds like they give the best fuel economy?  Though I guess it would be pretty similar to driving an automatic.

Manual , until the dog gets in the way..  Wish they put 4 speeds on the column...

Autos on the tree with bench seats are best for cruising with a girl . She can slide Right Over....

I'm surprised by this because from what i've seen ( i only skimmed) i will be the first to say it but paddle shifters are hands down the best for performance of any kind. the shifting is immediate because you dont have to worry about the pedal clutch and you have complete control over what gear your in. it is honestly the best of both worlds.

that being said i FUCKING hate paddle shifters. its confusing to me. and i can't drive an automatic with out giving my passengers whiplash because i forget its an automatic. i prefer stick myself just because its what im used to. some day ill be able to drive a the paddle shifters because it is perfect for performance. i mean if it wasn't why would wrc and formula 1 use it (how ever i think formula 1 made the move to full auto gear boxes a couple years ago).

just my .02
