I've only driven the 3 speed auto, but I understand the 5-speed has  
better performance.

I usually drive at a pretty good clip in my auto trans on the  
highway, and I haven't had any trouble passing other cars driving at  
those speeds, but I haven't really paid much attention either (which  
I guess means that it's acceptable for how I drive).  It's not quite  
as responsive as the 2004 Subaru Outback I had for a bit, but I've  
never had any real problems driving it like any other car.  In fact,  
my biggest problem is when I drive another car and forget that it's  
not the DeLorean and that I need to slow down more to go around sharp  
curves. :)
