      POLL: Does your Aveo have an automatic or manual transmission?

      Auto or manual trans? And why did you choose it?

      Have your previous cars had manuals or autos?

      Good poll question! OK, my vote doesn't count (pre-Aveo)...

      But I voted anyway. I always pick manual transmission when I have the choice. I've had maybe 25 or 30 cars, and only 2 have been automatics, one being my first car (land yacht 1964 Pontiac Catalina 389 V8 ), the 2nd didn't have a manual option.

      Voted Auto since my current 2010 is, but my previous 2004 was manual. Driving a stick shift is definitely a dying art in North America.

      Yeah, only something like 6 or 7% of new cars in the U.S. are manuals now.

      I have owned four cars in my life, all manuals. The next one I am getting is going to be an automatic for a boat towing SUV. Been looking for four wheel drive. An automatic makes sense there. I am inline for an Elio Elio Motors | The next big thing in transportation! and I plan to get the manual there too.
      Please do not power off, firmware update pending.....

      I've owned 13 cars/trucks over the years. Of those, 5 have been automatics and 8 were manual trans.

      You mean you actually swapped the transmission? What kind of car was that?

      I am inline for an Elio
      That's a cool machine. I hope it comes to fruition.

      I voted auto however I wish my current car was a manual. I have owned a few in the past and love to drive them. When I got my car it was the only one on the lot so I got stuck with an auto
