For those who want an automatic transmission get ready for some fun. The memory transmission is so sensitive that it shifts differently according to what pair of shoes I have on. This can be VERY ANNOYING! I hope that this is not a big problem in the newer models. I had my transmission reset when I first got the car because the shifting was so weird. It's good on gas and I haven't had any other problems. Oh yeah and it has minimal torque. This is a great car for a commuter, student, or as a second car.
The automatic transmissions need to have smoother shifting.
