Hey guys,

Just curious what everyone here chose for their transmission choice: auto or manual?

I got a 2010 EX with the 6 speed just because I love to row my own gears and love to drive so it keeps me involved.

What about everyone else?

I have the six speed manual
I'm suprised at the poll results so far, Never thought so many of us got the manual.

I always enjoy a manual vehicle of any kind
more fun that way :) guess most of us agree

I wanted the manual, but there was too good of a deal on the demo model when I was shopping.

Alas, the demo model was an auto.

Also a little fun fact, automatic transmission Forte Koups weigh 16lbs more than the manual transmission Forte Koups.

Auto~ When I was buying I really wasn't good enough at stick to test drive and buy a manual. Also if I had the capability at the time to get a manual I would have ended up in a Civic SI Sedan, or a Sentra SE-R Spec V. So my inability to drive stick at time of purchase put me in the forte =p

Auto or Manual?

I went for Auto on my 2010 SX because the reviews/tests I looked at before I bought were critical of the manual for it's first gear stalling & touchiness.

Manual Transmission

All my vehicles have MTX.

Cheaper to maint, cheaper to service, prolongs brake life.

Not to mention i have been saved by push starts too many times from failed starters and dead batteries.

Wanted the manual and wouldnt buy another auto, doesnt feel like you are in control of the car. Gives you a real driving experience.

Its crazy now if you go to some dealers they dont even offer a maunal transmission on some models or have to have it special ordered.
