I can't get logged into this site, and I don't know about "cookies", I would like to join as a member to the site but I can't deal w/ the complicated log in business. Anyway, that is why this will apparently be 'anonymous'. To your question, though -- I am a new aspire owner and have run by some real 'doozies' of questions to my mechanic, I get his reaction to my concepts or questions. All I can say is to do a feasibility study by asking your trusted mechanic if it is practical to install an automatic transmission into your Aspire. I totally sympathize with your desire to 'go automatic' (though I can't get used to only 3 gears - the engine acts like it wants to shift one more time to be happy on the freeway). Your 5 spd manual will be missed by you on the freeway, but your in-town will be cake. The reason I tried to respond to your question is because just 2 weeks ago I asked my mechanic about the feasibility of mating some kind of 4 speed automatic tranny to an Aspire thereby making, in my mind, the perfect car. When he got done laughing he said the undertaking would be prohibitive cost-wise, though he didn't say impossible. This may not be much help, except the advice about recommending consulting the mechanic. Best of Luck, Ken M. ('97 Aspire as of 3 mo)
