Get The Automatic!!!!

ReviewI have always liked to drive a stick and so I opted for the 6 speed manual. It is a mistake on this car. The gearing is such that the car revs at 3000 RPM or higher on the highway at 65-70 MPH. I drove an automatic when on a trip recently, and it only revs at 2000-2500 RPM at highway speeds. This gearing is probably why the automatic gets better mileage. The automatic shifts fast and smooth and is no slouch either. If I had it to do again, automatic all the way. The four isn't bad. But the six kicks tail. If you can get the six for a good deal, jump on it. You won't regret it even with the lower gas mileage. Option wise, it is almost in a class with a Lexus
Best FeaturesBody style, stereo, seats, driving position, steering wheel, floor mats included, mp3 player plug in.
Worst FeaturesChange engine gearing on the standard so the car revs at 2500 RPM at 70 MPH like the automatic. More lateral support in seats.
