I went with the auto and love it so far. I've always preferred a manual transmission in a sports car, but for the first time I'm actually considering the automatic in the Mustang Ecoboost. I like the way the manual felt, certainly seems like more fun, the throw was nice and short. Transmission was leaking oil after repair. Joe was very accommodative for my wishes.
Also, which was nice, he suggested I come back in the spring to re-do the wheel and an extra wheel if needed. A way around this is the paddle shifters still work even when your in Drive instead of sport, so I just make it downshift myself when I start slowing down. Ford has reported that this 10-speed auto will not lose any torque when shifting gears. I have no doubts that the 2011 is the better car, I was just a bit baffled by the acceleration impressions. Like As owning a 96 v6 manual mustang, sadly wrecking that and now I have a 04 v6 auto I would take my 96 manual over the newer car any day. I have had plenty of autos though. My last Mustang was a 2008 with 5 speed, and my first Ford.
Also if your driving stick you dont have a hand to text with :p Like Manual transmission is far better. Now I own a 97 6cyl with 5 speed. Six years later, I wish I had bought a manual. The '10 I drove handled great and had a surprisingly decent growl then I would have expected. I'm not as heavy into sneakers as I used to be.
I wouldnt mind driving an automatic mustang to work daily. Either way, they made improvements to the cars aerodynamics to increase gas mileage in 2011. Performs excellently in the summer, but only decently in the winter, as it is more of a sports car. How much better mileage do you get? The transmission is in overdrive at 30 mph going uphill under normal acceleration! If you have any questions about your V6 Mustang or just want to connect with other V6 Mustang owners around the world, you have found the best place on the internet to do that. Needless to say, today's technology and Ford's engineering department is making it rather hard to ignore the truth that the auto is definitively faster and almost as fun. Like true, the automatic is more consistent. Door ajar warning light 302-specific 180 mph 9000 rpm 20.
We hate to admit that the manual transmission is going out of style, but the general downward trend says otherwise. And with the proper shift points and transmission tuning, these cars are blowing stick cars out of the water! This is due to the debut of the all-new 10R80 10-Speed Automatic Transmission, new to the Mustang for the 2018 model year. Track: After finding the right backroad, I was excited to get a feel for how this transmission reacts to some more aggressive driving. Would a tune help with that? This community is about a common love for Mustangs, regardless of the number of cylinders they have or the appearance mods their owners have installed. I have a 2000 gt convertible.
Point being, I drive an automatic when I just need to get from point A to point B. The latest version highlights F-Series, the best-selling truck in the U. Anyway, sometime i do prefer the control of the manual but there are plenty of times I'm glad i have the auto. I've heard that automatic transmission gets better gas mileage but manual gives you more of a driving experience. Autos are lower maintenance, too, but more expensive to replace. I'm a Freshman here right now! I grew up on a manual Ford Ranger. At the moment I drive an automatic ford Taurus but I have done a few lessons driving manual with my uncle.
I like it well enough, the Sportsmode with select shift gives me a little bit of control when I think I need it but I haven't really gotten after it much since I was still in break-in mode. Some may enjoy driving a manual in heavy traffic…Well here in Detroit it absolutely sucks. With an automatic, you have to have the power go through a torque converter before exiting the transmission and running through the drivetrain. If the vehicle must be driven in these conditions, Ford recommends using all-season or snow tires. Having a standard I knew I would be able to control my shifting points and rpm, starting out at a higher rpm I knew I would pull harder. A lot of cars now adays get better economy with the autos, and they are getting to the point where they are just cheaper to put in the cars becuase thats what people want, supply and demand.
After the first few weeks, I definitely didn't regret it. All of which have different needs when it comes to which transmission to run with on your Mustang. That means higher demand, and higher demand means a higher price point. Photos uploaded without any context will be removed. Gas mileage seems a bit better.
