I have always owned a standard transmission, however driving in California traffic, it's nice to have an automatic. There is no shift shock, as they advertise.
Automatic transmission, The comfort factor. I drove over 1000 miles in one day and got out of the car without feeling stiff. I'm tall and have exceptionally long legs. Sitting with support on my legs is not the norm in a compact car.
A more user friendly windshield wiper control. I'm just having a hard time getting used to it. I guess it's my age. lol Mirror control isn't lighted. No big deal, I'll get used to that as well.
