I would learn to drive stick decently and then get a standard... believe me if you buy Auto you will be dissapointed... the auto GT is incredibly slow... I have one... and an Auto GTS is somehow even slower because of gear ratios... so... I'm sure you'll really regret it if you don't learn and get a standard I definitely did.

Stick is the way to go on a GT-S. Practice it doesn't take long to learn and once you do u will be glad you decided against an auto... and if your look at this vehicle from a straight line speed aspect the Auto is not even in the same class. It's about 2 second slower in the quarter.

Go get a manual. I got an auto gt-s and it was one of the biggest mistakes i've ever made. About 2 years ago, I traded it for a 6spd and learned to drive stick on it. Makes driving so much more fun ;)

if you just want to cruise around and look nice get the auto..if you have upgrade plans then get the manual..if you really like it then you'll force yourself to learn stick..plus its a great car for road trips..you got cruise control!!

The auto GTS has really bad gearing and is slower than the auto GT. Buy the manual GTS and learn. Driving your own car is the best way to learn how. By the way the search button is God! This thread topic is posted like once a week.

Like everyone else, get a manual even if it is a GT but especially if you get a GT-S. In my opinion, you save more gas, you have more control with the throttle, and you have more control in the turns. Besides, I think that automatic cars are boring to drive.

You'll pick it up eventually and hopefully have some clutch left when you get it down.

Well, If your looking at the GT-S...take this in mind that the AUTO GT-S is the slowest out of the 7th gen autos...For getting a GT-S get the manaul, it will take some time but It will be worth It I'm sure. But If you have your mind set on an auto go for the GT auto.
