2014 v6 stick shift

Curious why did those who opted for automatic choose auto for a sportscar?

I chose it for the convenience of living in the city which is where most of my daily driving is going to be. Also, I have a 2010 GT/CS and a 2005 v6 in the family which are both manual if I ever feel like driving a stick for the day

I live in suburbia (stop signs at the end of every block and crazy amounts of traffic lights), would have been unenjoyable to shift so much everyday. My car is my DD 30+ miles on it a day I much preferred the automatic.

Ive had a lot of autos over the years and to be honest I wanted some thing different. There's still nothing like slamming gears and hauling *** or downshifting and blowing by some one.

Because it makes road head easier.

I would have gone with the automatic if I could've found one close to the price of my car. Automatic is the way to go, my next stang will have an automatic.

My 03 GT Auto did suck but it only had 4 speeds, my 2014 has 6 speeds and a manual control option. I like just flooring it and holding on sometimes. I did test drive a manual and just enjoy this generation Mustang more with an Auto. My 350Z and Nissan Versa are manuals and I didn't even consider an auto in either of those cars.

I have a manual and have always liked manuals but I always find it funny when people associate stick trans to sports cars. Automatics have come along way and its no longer the case that you step on the gas and have to wait 3 seconds for the car to react. In current cars any lag that comes from the factory auto's can usually be corrected with a tune (if even needed at all). I mean some of the fastest sports cars in the world don't even offer a manual option anymore, they all come with automatics with the ability to switch between full auto and paddle shifters.

Few reasons:

It's my daily driver, and I drive 25,000 miles/year. A lot of that is in traffic. My first car was a manual and I swore I'd never get a manual again unless it was my second car.

I like keeping my hand free to grab the thigh of the pretty girl in the passenger seat.

Getting road head wasn't a top consideration, but very good reason nonetheless.

2014 v6 stick shift

Plus if I ever wanna control which gear I'm in, I can use select shift, and I use it often. No it doesn't give you the same level of control as a manual because you have no control over a clutch, but you can drop it down to second whenever you want to. Lol and for some reason a lot of people think you can't directly drop more than one gear. For instance, they think that an auto with select shift can't go from 4th to 2nd like a manual would. That isn't true, all you have to do is press the downshift button twice quickly and it goes down two gears.
