I have put nearly a million miles on VW manual xmissions.... they are world renowned for having nearly 'perfect' shift feel. Never had any problems whatsoever... never even wore out a clutch!
For long-term driving with lowest maintenance, an automatic xmission is not the right choice. Too many moving parts, too much maintenance and lower MPG as compared to manual xmission.

I agree. I put 289,000 miles on my 1980 Rabbit's manual transmission with no problems and the original clutch.
