That was my whole point. Would you pay a additional 1000. for a DGS trans that works from the beginning? IDK what the optional auto cost, but tack on a $1000.00 on top of that. Who would go for that? I guessing for the mass consumer, probably not. Their theory is it's a Ford. Loose some bean counters & let some product that works out to the pupil.
