"Usually?" I hope you mean always!
What kind of symptoms were you seeing, regarding inappropriate gear selection? While my Focus is a 5-speed, my partner's mother just took delivery of an auto. I'll be riding in it and driving it from time to time, and I'm trying to get a feel for some of the issues others have seen with them. Being that my lady (who will be driving it probably once a week) and her mom aren't really into cars, I hope to help her maintain it well and avoid any serious issues.
Basically, I keenly read any automatic issue threads, and appreciate all the great info from this forum.
