I learned to drive on a manual and after having an automatic for a first car I needed my focus to be manual. I wouldn't have it any other way... and I feel like that's what most people who drive a manual would say.

I would have chosen "both" were it an option, because My ST is a manual, but the Town Car(which gets far more road hours than the Focus) is an auto. Both have pros and cons, IMO. I wouldn't want to have to shift in stop and go traffic in a Town Car(and My clients prefer the smooth ride), but I wouldn't enjoy My Focus nearly as much if it were an ATX like My last one was.

I guess I would count as "both" as well since the Stang is an auto.

I would have voted both. I had a 2005 ST 2.3L with 5 spd and a 2003 ZTS with a 2.3L PZEV with the 4 spd auto. The 2.3L auto is really an excellent combination since the 2.3L has great low end torque, which makes for effortless traffic performance. The 2.3L auto turns a lot less revs on the highway than the ST did, which makes for less frantic highway cruising. It will be interesting to see how the 6 spd dual clutch automatic on the new Focus works versus the 5 spd.
