What did you get - a manual or automatic transmission?

Automatic. I don't race, I live in the city which means stop-and-go traffic, and I like having my hand free to mess with my stereo, etc. I've had manuals and shifting gets old fast, unless you're in a sports car.

And shifting is just plain fun!!
About the only reason to get a manual. If you find shifting fun.

I like that newer cars are embracing more advanced technologies like CVT (continuously variable transmission), paddle shifters and auto-manuals(like the xB).

I bought my Xb with an automatic transmission. I find that the automatic transmission shifts smoothly and makes the ride more refined. I do mostly city driving and with all of the stop-n-go traffic, shifting would get old very quick. For those of you that love to shift go for it, I just prefer to let the Xb do all of the work!
you can still shift the auto xB scion - just shift into S-Mode!! :)

see S-mode thread:
