A. Manual. I drove my Fiance's auto Forester and hated it in the mountains.

A!!!! I learned on a manual and absolutely love manuals. I don't care if you have traffic or not (just don't burn the clutch up) I feel lazy in an auto.

Manual all the way. I control what my car does. Not the car.

out of the 4 cars i've owned in my short life 3 were manuals and i loved them. MY 2014 focus is a DCT and i got to say it's not to bad. I do miss the manual when i'm on the old country roads, but daily driving this thing, especialy in traffic i am really liking the Auto. I can apprciate both.

I have the automatic in my '03 ZX5, and it is a nice transmission. Obviously I assume you are talking about a brand new Focus, so I can't really help you there. If you know how to drive stick, go for it. If you don't want to drive stick and/or want a nice, easy car, go for the auto. Both have their upsides and downsides, you just have to weigh the two and find out which is better for you.
