How bad is the automatic transmission?
Ok - here's the deal: for the most part, I prefer auto transmissions. I do know how to drive a manual, but it's been about 20 years since I owned a vehicle with a manual transmission (and that was a small Ford Ranger pickup).
I've been really wanting a Solstice lately and had actually decided that since it will be a fun/weekend car (I've got a Chevy Colorado crew cab as my daily "practical" vehicle), I might as well get it in manual, but as luck would have it, one that has popped up for sale locally for a very good price has the auto.
So in your guys opinions - is the auto something to completely avoid, or would I have just as much fun in one?
