Default What's your tranny???

If you have more than one, vote for your primary.

So, everyone, what is the tranny in your 90/900/9000/S/SE/SS/CSE?

Curiuos to see which will win across the entire line of Saab.

I bet manual, but I have 2 autos.


Poll will run and be 'stickied' for 30 days (if no one minds).

Manual, and wouldn't have it any other way. Although I always have been a bit curious how it is on the other side...

An Auto by any other name is still an Auto.

I'm not a fan of the "granny tranny" and don't plan on having another one again. That said, the double clutch Audi one looks cool as do some of the CVTs out there.

Regardless of the time frame....43 votes...7 automatics???? We'd need a TON of auto folks to make a dent in that number.

No its not, its an automatic hooked up to a manual override. Like BMW's Steptronic. BMW's SMG is an example of a manual tranny hooked to a computer clutch. Ferrari and Toyota ( ) have systems like the SMG too.

Sorry my friend but you are wrong...

To quote Saab

Quote:
Saab Sensonic is an automatic sysytem of clutch operation which replaces the clutch pedal.

The Sensonic system is available as an option on Saab 900 models equipped with the B240L engine and a manual gearbox
I was actually looking at one this evening as it happens. :wink:

This man drives a manual if its worth driving, Saab currently does not have one like that. They should just buy them from Honda. Best manuals is the world. They just go snick snick snick, has to be the most satisfying feeling there is with a car.

Aisin supplies the M/T to Honda. Aisin also makes the A/T
for the 9-3. As for the 'snick'snick' action of a Honda stick
shift, if there is a M/T for girls or wimps that is the one.
E715, how bad can the tranny be in the 9-3 for you to reject it?
