Lol. I don't want to run a car out of warranty hence having to change every 3 years, but there's too much choice and too many good cars out there :-)

I thought it was only the smart car that forgot to drop down the cogs as you slowed :-)

I've been sold on lazy autos for a long time, particularly for towing. Can't remember the last time I needed to make it shift gear apart from towing downhill?

In normal mode mine will think for a second if you floor it (to overtake for example) but not in sport mode.

If I have a new job next month I might look at a replacement daily :D

TBH, I only flick it up a gear because it adds about 5-10 mpg :hand:
