Yes Jost has it right, "manual shifting is part of the excitement of driving performance vehicles"

If you want tiptronic/auto/paddle shifting you should buy the performance Fusion. Heck, you can even have all wheel drive in a Fusion but you have to have the auto transmission with it. Even the VW R32 has auto transmission.

Just saying manual transmission is a positive thing in my humble opinion.
