I think SMG has a full auto mode. How well does the SMG shift in the full auto mode?

Thanks

The SMG in auto mode feels similar to shifting manually..... but somewhat slower. It is NOTHING like an auto transmission, however. There are pauses while the clutch engages and the gears change..... it's not a smooth shift like the Steptronic.

Bottom line.... the SMG is a sport transmission. It is not for the wife driving to the grocery store.

The best description I've heard given by someone here was that it's like being a passenger in a manual transmission car.
