I am not too sure about the performance, but I like how it works; except I prefer manuals better <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> as for a performance it should be close to manual but it depends on a driver as always.. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0> Automatic is faster than a newbie manual. so I assume shiftronic is way to go from now on.. unless you are a manual guy.. the big advantage of the manual is that you get 5th gear oppose to 4 gear in automatic...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I just really don't understand why anyone would buy a sports car with an auto tranny.... SIX SPEED is all I can say!

wait a minute, isn't the fifth gear in a 5 speed just the overdrive? it's just to get better mileage, I don't think you'll go faster with the fifth gear right? And on the shiftronic, I think it's 4 speeds, but when you shift over to the D, that is the overdrive...so it is sorta like a 5 speed...or maybe I am wrong

i hate shifttronic so much, i hate the way it works, i hate the concept behind it, i just hate it. i was driving my girlfriends lude with shifttronic and it's annoying having to just push up without using a clutch or anything. guess i'm just to use to driving a manual.

I don't like shiftronic. It doesn't feel natural - kinda like ur not supposed to be doing it that way. Mainly because there's no clutch and the car kinda "jumps" when u accelerate after shifting.

My mom's got an S-Type Jaguar. It's not shifttronic, but its got this "J Shifter" thing where u move the shifter over into manual mode. I think if you shift well on that, its the same as automatic (because there's a lag for RPMs to drop when u shift). I'd assume shiftronic is the same.

Not a Tibby, but I have the shiftronic in my XG (it's a 5-speed auto BTW) and I find it more gimmicky for normal driving than anythig else. Shifts are no quicker with it than just leaving it in "D", and the car still upshifts on it's own before redline is even reached. However, there is one situation that using the shiftronic is better than just leaving it in Drive - in snowy/slippery conditions. It allows me to hold a lower gear in hard going, and allows better use of engine braking as well, again by holding the gear I choose.
