Re: XR6T Auto Trans
I could not be more happier than I am with my XR6T Auto. I pondered for months before deciding the Auto over manual. I have always owned manual performance turbo cars. But this SSS box is great, it gives you the best of both worlds. You can be lazy if you wish or enjoy switching between gears manually. There is allways a slight delay with auto change but it is not that noticeable, quite sudden I feel. I felt the manual box was slower between gears (it is not one of the great manual boxes available).
You cannot compare the new Ford auto with others you may have tried. The 400m times in the XR6T prove that the auto is consistently quicker than the manual and that is in performance auto mode!
But do not judge it by what I or others tell you - you have to test drive both. As I was still not sure after driving both at one dealer, I went to 2 other dealers to get more road time to decide. They will not give you the car for a full day test unfortunately.
And remember when you tick your colour box it must be Blueprint !
