  Well, if you consider that most of the population lives in cities 
and most of the cities have stop and go driving for the work 
commute and most people prefer an automatic (at least after 
a few years of it) for stop and go driving...  Most probably 
prefer an automatic even if it's by a default choice rather than 
a true, personal preference.  :-(

It's only a deal if it's where you want to go. Find 
your travel deal here.
