...Cheaper, quicker, better mileage, fun, engine braking, ability to coast in traffic, etc
....and now (at least for the 2008 Honda Accord Coupe 6M) a new dimension: a snappy, new, reconfigured shifter (per TOV)
..all the best, ez..

did you just test drive it or drove it for a while? i find although autos are supposed to be easier to operate there's a learning curve for every model due to a difference in the body language that the tranny understands.
at first i was a bit confused, but with time I learned the tranny and it's not terrible at all of course in a demanding situations i drop it to lower gears...and it does make sense to me - automation with a way to override it.
but of course, I understand the appeal of the stick...after all I was under it's influence for a long while

What tallman said.
The stick just feels worlds more responsive. Better mpg and lower cost is icing on the cake.
