First i like to say this is an very informative board and i like how the users try to help each other. Well enough of that, my problem is i've considering purchasing a first gen MX6 after i sold my TX3. I've looked in the papers and have found several examples. One is an auto turbo with all the luxuries etc and 4ws, going for about $9800 Australian. the other however is exactly the same minus 4ws but is a 5 speed. My tx3 was a 5sp so i prefer to drive a manual car. i was wondering if the 4ws was worth the trade off of having an auto. i was reading some reviews where comments were made about the mx6 not handling well without it. i just wanted to verify with you guys if this was true or not. having driven a 4wd tx3 handling was not a major issue. thanks in advance.
