What is with the Automatic Mustangs ?!?

You paid the cash to own a Stang & only get 1/2 the driving experience ?!?!

I dunno....

I solved the problem by buying one of each :eyepoppin The automatic convertible is a great cruiser and the 5 speed coupe is an awesome racer.

I simply had no patience. I didn't have a lot of time to shop around and the dealership gave me a good deal on my 06. Do I wish I'd waited for a 5sp? Yes.

I guess going thru the gears with your 5sp makes you feel like a real macho man, right ?

Possibly!

Either way, no point in bein' a snooty ol' "drivetrain snob" around here. This is a great car and an excellent experience whether your stir your own gearbox or not.

Pbbbbttt!

I've posted this before. I've lost count of how many 4 banger's I've owned. I tell you some of the toughest races have come against auto sleepers. One wrong shift or clutch slip and you're toast. I'm on the other side of 45 and the auto is a blast!

I have had manuals in my 2000 and 2003 stang gt,,,,Thought I would give a 5 speed automatic a chance.......I would have got the Manual if it was 6 speed and not the same ones that they have been using for the last few years.But since I got a very great price I don't mind the Automatic at alllll.JohnnyT

After deliverin pizza all day in my 'stang (backup ride is still being worked on) I've somewhat wondered what the hell I was thinking buying a manual. The long shifts kinda get to me after a while and by the end of the day, my legs are a bit sore. Say what you want, but constant 8+ hour driving on short trips with variable speed roads and a numerous stoplights.... you'd wonder too. That said, I love the damn thing & happy I bought a manual (except when I stall it... happens a lot less than when I first got it). My major reason for going manual was twofold: wanted the driving experience & it was cheaper. That said, if I were to buy another one (read: a second one... as in addition to the current one) I'd get an automatic, just for days delivering peoples food... it'd be a bit more comfortable.

Some folks just like the autos... nothin wrong with it... shouldnt have to feel ashamed. Least when your tired, the autos wont screw up & miss a shift. =) This is about as pointless as the GT vs V6 debate in my mind.

I will say this...I don't feel like I've gotten my money's worth on the XCal2 (yet, anyways) because it can do alot of cool stuff for an auto tranny that's useless for a manual. I would LOVE to be able to play with the gear shift schedule on an auto, for instance, trying different settings and finding just that right one. In that sense, I'm envious of two-pedal guys...
