i usually go with the manual transmissions, just because that's plainly my opinion. but you can order the new gto with a 6 speed trans, right? cuz that's what i read once, but if im wrong, please correct me. im not familiar with the 6 speed trans. i have yet to drive a car with a 6 speed. not sure what gear to start off of. like on a 4 speed, you would start on the 2nd. to me, if you have to shift more than three or four times, then go with the automatic.terry1122 said:Mannual or Automatic for the 04 GTO? Give your thoughts.

Plus I love using the transmission for breaking, you get a nice throaty rumble/gurgle note from the exhaust when you downshift. Autos are nice for tons of city driving, but I can deal with it.
