I’m new to the site so learning what’s what and the how to. That’s what every one says the new autos are more advanced then what used to be. But it drives me nuts when it’s not shifting to a lower gear when it should. I don’t care what any one says I prefer my 5speed
It would depend on how the imagined manual trans would shift. I mean, I enjoy driving most vehicles with manual trans but there are some that I'd rather have the auto. I don't like how the 6-speed feels in the super duty powerstroke so I'd take the auto, granted I know there is no longer manual option. In the ram with the cummins, I prefer the manual, especially on the older 5.9 with the NV 4500 or 5600 trans.
I don't mind the auto in my EB though. I seems to have the right gear everytime and if nothing else there's always select shift.
