Got 3.8 A/T - after 5 months and 10K miles, A/T improvements I would like to see on future model are:1) rev matching to make shifts smoother, 2) faster shifts, 3) allow downshifts to 2nd as long as rev limit is not exceeded at shift time ( maybe a cushion of 1500? rpm - not sure because now downshifts seem to be locked out until something less than 3000 rpm - somewhat slow tach response makes it hard to tell for sure).
Anyway, selected auto because of age and back problems and problems noted with the manual.
