The problem is automatic transmissions. They aren't built to be constantly decel/accel.

The car has automatic headlights, but she left them on manual override and the battery was dead last night. Got to "jump" the car already. Still can't believe how many bells and whistles this thing has. Very nice car. Very smooth and quiet. Better than a Prius.
