Automatic Transmissions.

The reasons i enjoy my automatic gearbox are: Therapeutic. It is quite relaxing not having to manually change gears. The leg does not become tired. If automatics are for lazy drivers then so be it. I enjoy being slack. My auto transmission provides multi tasking. :) :lol:

With one hand on steering wheel, the cd disc is inserted. Or i can change radio stations. The hand is kept on wheel so that windows can be adjusted. I set up the climate control with spare hand. Please keep in mind, that all of this is done responsibly while concentrating on road. :lol: While driving with one hand, my spare paw can manipulate the flavoured milk carton or a soft drink :)

The other limb is conveniently used to partake of a snack while driving. This could be slices of pizza, fish and chips or whatever. :peace: :shades: :popcorn: :) :lol:

I'd rather have a manual transmission, if I could. Unfortunately, the US market seems to be going in the direction of automatics more every day.

At least Ford still offers a manual on the Escape, although not on any model other than the base model.

Also, can we please limit product reviews to actual product reviews (such as Valvoline SYNPower oil, for example), and not reviews of cheese, pencils, paper clips, and bungee cords?
See the Beetle convertible in the left side of the garage?

That was bro-in-law's present to my sister for her birthday.

A car. And the 'scape lost its space in the garage.
