I am getting a 2000 Celica GTS with a sport-shift automatic transmission...I don't know much about cars and have no idea what a sport-shift automatic transmission is. Does this mean that I can drive the car as an automatic or a manual? Please write me back.

a button shift on the steering wheel, i've seen a mod for that but it looks like it'd short out fast or something

my friend had an eclipse with tiptronic.. im guessing its about the same thing.. he could choose when to shift but it wouldnt shift as hard.. basically like a regular auto...

ya tiptronic is a button shifter on the steering wheel, mainly used for race cars to remove the gear shift, its not for an auto though, i dont think

sorry for bashing honda but im just sayin wat i think, dont like it too bad, but i didnt get the button set up becuase it was on the center console by the shifter and it was complicating at the tiem

i beleive the sport shift is actually a center stick type thing not a button on the steering wheel... you can put it in auto...or move the stick over and push it up and down when you want to change gears...drove an eclipse like that was actually kinda fun. but then again kinda boring no feet work involved. dont even have to take your foot off the gas.

ive actaully seen one the guidence councler at my school has it on her celica...there 2 buttons on each side the the steerin wheel that u can press to shift the gears..kidna tight because the harder you are down on the pedal the faster it will shift... kinda hard to do if ur turning though

after lookin around the internet, icce was right, the sport shift is where you can push the gear shift over and push it up and down to shift up and down the gears.

No,No A Auto w/ sport means its has a program thats self adapting. My 2002 VW had the same thing.

oh i mis read that hes getting the paddle shift yeah all it is is like a shift knob? that goes forward and backwards...its a triptonic system that u change gears manually and when u fuck up it automaticcaly does wording that wrong but im tired as fuck...basically itsa padle shift you shift sorta like an auto but no clutch ...think of it as an old school (like camero or chevell) auto shift kit
