Any insight as to why some say their MDS activates much more often? Like everyone else, I'd actually like to see this whole mess resolved preferably by a factory fix or by preventative maintenance. I'd really like to get an auto as a daily driver but I've been sitting on the fence for too long undecided as to whether using autostick would be a PIA or not.
If you really want an auto daily driver consider a 2008-2010 6.1L SRT8, no MDS and a completely different timing belt setup, I can't comment about real world fuel economy on the automatics, but it is much better than sticker on the manuals, I average around 19 mixed mostly highway, and have had peak of about 25 mpg on a 300+ mile road trip mostly cruising at 70+ mph. Prices for a low mileage car are similar, maybe even cheaper than a new RT.
