I have been sold out by many of fellow Pakwheelers and have decided to buy an Altis SR. I am still undecided between the manual and auto transmissions.
My only experience with an auto transmission was a few years back with a Ford Mondeo, unfortunately the gear box started giving me trouble just a month after the 3 years warrenty expired. Since then I have never opted for an auto.
I do not intend to race my car so the 0 - 100 and top speeds do not influence any decision here. Obviously the auto transmission is less tyring to drive, hopefully most would agree.
I would like fellows using the altis over the last few years kindly advise on whether the Altis auto gear box is reliable and troble free or not and kindly also compare the fuel consumtion of the two while driven in the city.
Any other comments to help a decision would be appreciated.
