RE: [DML] do automatic transmission have lots of problems?

This is a loaded question but I'll try to answer in brief - I have an 
automatic (manual was my preference but couldn't pass this one up).  I have 
changed out the transmission's governor/computer once (prone to failure - 
cost of part is about $200.00 w/core) in the year I've owned the car.  I 
hope the new, re-built part will last several years.

Other than the governor/computer, the automatic is great.  Yes, it's not as 
fun as rowing through the gears of a manual, but still a nice compromise.  
One big plus I understand from other owners is the ease of driving the car 
in slow speeds in parades and other events.

E-mail me off line if you have any further questions.

A few sellers have told me that DMCs with automatic transmission are
prone to lots of transmission trouble and you should always buy a DMC
that is a manual.

Any opinions or facts on this?
