Default Tranny poll

I guess since I started this poll, was a 4 speed stick, now slowly becoming a 5 speed with OD.

Looks like some competition from the "auto no overdrive" and "stick no overdrive" camps. Keep those votes rolling in folks.

Wayne,

The kind of miles you rack up (8000+ per year), with gas prices going up, that investment in an OD trans could be paid back in 5~7 years. Shorter if the oil companies do the 5 buck a gallon thing again.

I have one with automatic w/o overdrive and one with a 5 speed with overdrive but it would only let me count one of them. The 5 speed got the vote.

I'm sure the other guys will push the auto w/o od way past the stick with od, so since you had a choice in your case, glad you picked my trans.

We (stick OD) are still ahead. Woohoo
