Re: What is with the Automatics ?!?
Stick / Auto / Whatever................
I had an 05 auto and traded it in for a stick just because I enjoy using the stick. Yes the stick is more fun to drive, but can also be a pain. One thing I was disapointed about was that it does not have a dip stick to check the tranny on the auto. (of course sticks never did). I had a Lebaron that had an auto and it then had a seal leak abd would need fluid every so often till I had the time to get it fixed. That is a major drawback because to new stang auto you would not be able to add fluid to get you around for a while nor check the fluid as part of normal maintenance. Of course, manuals really do not require any maintenance. Like I said I prefer the manual, and my car is just a joy riding car so it is fine for me. I also have a day to day Olds auto, so I use that for my town chores, and my pickup (standard) for larger chores.
All in all, you drive what you like and the V6 has the same auto as the GT model, the sticks are different on the V6 and V8.
