Re: Comments on auto-transmissions

There is hope, Duane, the 200 Quattros all have 5 speeds...plus if you wanna
buy new you can still get an S6 wagon, only with the 5 speed. 200 non-quatros
were available (only?) with automatic, I'm not usre how it worked with
the 100s of that vintage.

Since we've decided we're in the market for a wagon,
we have a perfect excuse to look at new quattros :-)

Unfortunately, apparently all wagons since '92 come
with automatics, not 5-speeds :-(

The only experience I have with autos is the V8 I had the chance
to test-drive last year. But, since the salesman riding shotgun
had a weak stomach, I couldn't really push it. I discovered his
limits, cresting a blind sweeper hill at about 60+. When he saw
the stop sign at the bottom, he kinda whimpered. I didn't mind
the tranny too much, especially set in "sport".

I assume 100/200 QW's aren't going to have the same tranny?
Any comments on how good they are?

Only my cat shares my opinions, and she always runs on automatic.
