Hey guys, just wanna see what everyone went with for their camaro, manual or automatic, and what made you choose. I chose manual because this car is gnna be a blast to drive in stick. Whats your take on it?
It's my main daily driver.. but I ordered a manual..
Nothing like driving a sports car and shifting..
My Z28 is an auto, and it gets boring driving it..
even though it has a 3500 stalled A4 Transmission. It will put out a 1.78 60ft
Which aint to bad for a stock internal engine..
Manual shift in a sports car is the only way to go unless you are driving in city stop and go traffic then it would be a little hectic. If most of your driving is on open roads then the 6 speed manual is the way to go.
I love reading everyones comments and opinions on whats better. Just buy what suits you and live with it lol
Manuals are fun if you want to bring out the kid in yourself again lol Layn rubber , shifting through the gears and dumping the clutch woooohoooo we have all done it lol Only thing about a manual that sucks is the driving in city traffic.
Autos are great for everyday driving and drag racing..I dont know many people who can outshift todays modern automatic transmission. Until you have driven todays A6 tranny dont dis it.
both have advantages and disadvantages buy it , live with it and enjoy it.
It's your money and what is best is what you want. I have had my A6 1SS since 5/20/09 and I love it. I am from Boston so traffic figures into it for me, plus I like to drag race. On the way to work this morning I used the paddles all of the way. It is very entertaining in this mode. all that is missing from the automatic is the clutch pedal. Only a professional racer will match my shifts. The automatic will NOT miss a shift! Oh, yeah, a Porche Tiptronic 9-11 isn't a sports car? How about a formula one Ferrari? Why don't grand prix racers use stick shifts any more?
I went with the manual too,, I can shift it pretty quick so the racing thing evens out . Its not my daily driver so automatic wasnt needed ( I WOULD if it was the daily car) . Shifting the gears manually just seems to put you in more control than press the pedal and go. Either is fine , I just think racing type cars should have a manual,, thats my personal opinion . But you really cant dis the auto in these,, I hear nothing but great things about them.
I'll be going with the manual as well. I'm still not sold on the "active fuel management" system. I still remember the days of the old Cadillac 4-6-8 system. I realize technology is better, but I'm thinking long term implications and possible repair costs. If I were still living in the San Francisco area, I would consider the auto. Some of those hills are a bear to get going on from a dead stop. lol!
6 speed, because my wife said that's what she wanted, quote "why give up 26 HP for the thing to drive itself?" her daily driver. I get a kick out of seeing her get into the car with high heels, she has done this with C5's, all manual, never had a problem.
Havent got mine yet but i will be going with the auto because i live close to L.A and i deal with the 405 and 5 freeways so yeah stick is out of the question but the only downside to the auto is the bad bog when you take off from a dead stop but other than that auto is what im getting
Need help. I have 89 Camaro RS. I have have problem. When I put the car D or R it shuts off. Also when I get to a light it shuts off the only way I can keep running it’s stepping on the gas all the time. I did a full tune up , check all the valve for any lose pressure clean carburetor with...
Had a quick question if you’ll could help. I have a 2010 Camaro SS and I keep getting the p0030 and p0135 code. I changed all 4 sensors and had the wiring repaired after rodents apparently chewed them up a bit. I know its unlikely but do you think theres a possibility that the ECM went bad...
Hello all, looking for your opinions. I recently sold my Jeep wrangler and looking to purchase my first wrangler. I have looked at both a 2014 camaro 2ss in beautiful shape 34,000 miles that is an automatic. I cant decide between it and a beautiful 2015 gen6 1ss manual with 63,000 miles. Both...
My 2010 Camarillo SS has 112000 miles.
Over the past 5k miles I have occasionally gotten in the car, inserted the key, turned the key (all dash lights come on normal) then when I go to start there is nothing no click no crank and the dash lights go off. It is getting very frequent and happened...
