ok I know this sounds crazy but I do not like manual transmission and I don't want to learn how to drive one but I found my dream car..only problem, its a manual. So, how much would it cost to change the entire transmission to automatic,and would it be bad for the car? Thanks

it would cost alot.

look at about 2-4 thousand dollars.

and if done correctly no it will not hard the car.. it would just make it a bit slower.

I say grow some balls. It will save you $2-4k.
+1 Dont be scared to learn. I promise you, you will love the manual once you get it down.

i say if it is your dream car than do whatever you want to because your the one thats going to be driving it and not all these other people.. so if you want to spend $2k on it than do it

honestly you really just be patient and look for a car like this one that's factory auto, the swap just doesn't seem practical...

Too much to swap transmissions imo. Also, a lot of guys dig chicks that can drive a stick. And, everyone is very sincere, including me, in saying that once you have a stick, you don't ever want an auto. Just give it some time and have someone show you. You'll get the hang of it.

and i wasnt asking if i should get a manual or not, i was asking advice on how much it would cost to change it over.
Balls are fun.

It wouldn't be worth it. Just buy an Auto.

Im a girl, and my mustang is my first ever 5 speed ( Ive been driving Only automatics for 10 years) ,and ive only had it for 3 weeks!! and i was TERRIFIED of it. I cried and had panic attacks the first week of driving it, and I told my boyfriend how much i HATED it and wished and wished I had bought an automatic instead...but now am in LOVE with it. Its soooo easy when you get the hang of it. now I drive it everywhere.

If you really dont want to buy a 5 speed. Buy an automatic, the cost will come out to the same after all is said and done its gonna cost over 3k to have it switched and auto trannys are NOT cheap by any means. and labor for that type of job is gonna cost over 70 bucks an hour. check out craigslist there are tons of autos on there.
