    Hello everyone. Just wondering what type of transmission you have any why you decided to get the one you have. I think there are 3 choices of tranny's, I went with the 6 speed manual for fuel economy and control. I used to think I hated driving stick, but after two years of auto I'm glad to be back :D

    ive driven them all. For a v6 I would get the auto. I had a 2006 V6 six speed and it didnt feel solid at all. My dad has a 2011 v6 with the auto and everything just feels so much better. I've always been a manual kind of guy and currently drive a 2010 4cyl with the 5 speed manual (most solid).
