i got the automatic this time around! i had a 2004 xB in Polar White w/ manual tranny and i could not drive it after 8 months due to my arthritis being so bad in my legs and all the movement with shifting...Eric said:What kind of transmission did you opt for for your '08 xB? And why?
Because my wife will possibly need to drive the xB more often than my previous car, we got an automatic. She can drive a stick, but an automatic is easier on her legs... I miss driving a stick, but can (hopefully) wait until our son grows up & I'm able to get another sporty car - I have to say it now, otherwise my wife will say it's a mid-life crisis
i really like the S-mode shifting w/ the automatic which is a sequential type shift cause at least it lets you take advantage of the engines power when you need to...
