It was something like that. I can't find the statistics anymore. Think I had them as part of a course at one time. I know I can feel a HUGE difference in my attention to driving when I drive an automatic. I drive a lot more like all the other choads on the road. Lots of panic stops etc.
Funny.. wanting to go with the automatic because of this alleged "throttle hang" that people imagine. I've definitely owned and driven more cars than most people, so maybe I'm more tolerant of learning how new cars drive, but I still think that's freaking picky; over the absolute lack of throttle control on an automatic.. what the heck? Not a great argument.
thinking that the toyota 5 speed auto is somehow not going to be prone to more problems than the possible throw out bearing issue on the 6 speed.
Not a great argument.
