    ^^ I have to drive automatic, so no issue for me :Smile:

    The stats show that 25% of cars sold new in the UK now have an automatic gearbox, and that they generally hold their value better (and to a greater extent than the original cost of the gearbox). With "flappy paddles" they can mostly be driven "like a manual" (sort of :Tongue:) now as well.

    As autos get more and more efficient, and the roads get more and more clogged, I can only see the numbers going up. In the USA, 95% of cars sold are automatic.

    I know quite a few people who said they'd never drive auto but once they tried it, liked it and stuck with it.

    I've had an auto on holiday, but not with "flappy paddles".
    I'll just have to try them and see.

    TBH I never use them on my Accord. On my MINI you move the gear stick to one side and then use it to move up and down the gears by pushing forward or pulling back. Hardly ever use that functionality either!

    For me, the beauty of an automatic is to stick it into "D" and waft around...:Smile:. With that 2.4 engine I guess you could do a bit more than waft if you wanted to...!!

    Wrong gearbox, nice car. Not a fan of auto if I ever get special needs will get behind one. Until I am able bodied never get a Auto. :vtec: Auto cars in a head to head well :Pathead:
