Don't most people?

Think it's more sinfull to go Auto that Diesel. Sports shouldn't be Auto in my opinion. Might have gone Diesel Estate but draw the line at Auto!

Autos tend to be much more popular in America......It's mostly manuals ( stick shifts ) over here.

Yeah debbs, 90% of cars over here are auto! Sucks a lot, but when you do come across a woman that drives stick...ahhhh! Women tend to love the "comfort" of auto!

"Comfort" What if you want to suddenly drop a couple of gears in a hurry when overtaking? What am I saying, you guys don't have tight windy B roads, where being stuck behind an old is a certain drive time killer.

Is there a particular reason why most cars in the States are Auto or was that decision taken so long ago no one can remember the reasoning behind it?

Can you put Nitrous on an auto? Is that allowed in the states?

Not trying to open a can of worms just genuinely interested in why and what etc.

Nitrous is legal in the states. The reason most cars in the US are auto is because 1) auto trannies cost more, so that means the auto makers make more money off them, which is why most cars on Dealer lots have them installed. If you want stick (assuming it's an option for the vehicle you want ,which in many cases it isn't), you often have to special order it. 2) Americans are lazy and driving stick takes too much work and is harder to learn.

By the way, where is your pic Debbie?

Well, if you drop the gas pedal all the way down, the auto tranny will drop to the most performance ready gear in a fraction of a second and it's just as good as down shifting. Not quite as powerful, but more than enough to pass a car quickly. Also, you're right...we generally have pretty straight roads, and a lot of flat land, so no uphills to worry about! BTW, Americans(myself included) are very lazy...so the less work they have to do, the better! My wife for one, is one that was raised in a country that you couldn't find an auto car even if you spent an entire day doing so, yet she won't even bother trying to learn how to drive stick! NOS can be put in an auto, and it is allowed here in the states. Can of worms is officially open!

I need to see pics of you next to the XJ to truly see the height thing! BTW, you look like you should be in middle school, minus the height! LMAO! and take a back seat pal, the handsomest one on the forum is MOI!

I'm only like 5 11 I'm not that tall. People just think I am.
I look like I'm in middle school because I'm well rested.
Sleep is the best way to stay young, it's a fact.

Jim maybe the woman in your photo is just really short, and that's ur way of lookin tall, eh??
We should just stick to polling nicest babes or nicest cars, no guy polls, lol...Maybe the few women on this forum can set that up on their own.

Ya...that was kinda like the "you can call me whatever the hell you want (as in Volvo Boy) cuz I'm still goin' to bed with my hot wife so I don't care comment. Sorry. Typing in forum threads makes inflection and tone of voice obliterated from comments....therefore requiring explanation sometimes.

Deb...as far as manual vs. auto trans goes....in the last 3-4 years, technology has proven to be more efficient in the world of transmissions, allowing AT's to be just as competitive with MT's lately. I've posted some comments before about how there have been teste done with S60R 6-speed AT vs. S60R 6-speed MT in the 1/4 mile. 6 cars, 3 of each....one drive...a computer system to analyze 0-60, 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile, RPM, and turbo boost. In all cases, the AT edged out the MT due to higher boost conditions maintained between gears and faster shift points. Hard to beat the computer. This is also true in some other stock vehicles. such as the 400hp Pontiac GTO - Automatic, which scores faster 1/4 mile times by Car & Driver, Road & Track, and Pontiac themselves.
Serious 1/4 mile drag racers in the US have been using Auto trannies for years. You just can't clutch and shifter faster than the mechanical/computer versions can anymore.

With all that being said though...a manual is definitely more fun to drive...but if you ever brave the freeway in Los Angeles...you'll understand why we don't buy stick shift anymore....*sigh*

I have a stick and auto and appreciate both...having an suv I love having a stick because even though I have the 2.0 liter in it the thing still has quite a bit of peppiness (when you keep the front tires from spinning) and I still get about 26mpg over the whole tank and can put whatever I want in it...but after driving the escape for a week or 2 straight the jag is sooo nice to get into and not have to worry about shifting just relax and when I need to pass hit the pedal on the right and don't have to hit left pedal shift and hit the right pedal...just tap the one on the right! Plus to shift properly with a stick you really have to mind the rpm range as to when would be the best time to shift to get best power...if you don't hit it perfect in my escape it has to get back up to the powerband to feel the power...auto its always there once you floor it and the computer drops the gear to the appropriate one...

Hands down hottest red head!!!
