I think my neon has the same transmission, does yours lock the converter? For pulse and gliding I think our 3rd is a benefit as it locks from 40mph. Most autos are hunting around slipping until 60mph with any kind of acceleration. For highspeed highway cruising I agree, although I've got a few tanks at 6.5L/100km averaging 110km/h with 130 at times.
I would trade the auto for a manual in a heart beat though.
