The automatic transmission governor computers are well known for being
troublesome. I've never driven an automatic, but some say the
automatics lack off the line "pep" compared to the 5 speed manuals.
Plus with an auto you only get a 3 speed transmission. No overdrive.
I'm sure many who own automatics will defend them, and point out why
they like them, but I can't imagine wanting anything but a 5 speed.
