I live in the mountain's of western Maryland and WV. I'm wondering how many breaks and rotors I will go through with the auto. 10 speed. my wife's explorer sucks. small motor's has no hold back at all. turbo's don't do anything to help that. that's why i was wanting the stick. ford don't test these things driving up and down mountain's day in and day out for year's at a time. I do not like the eco's just for that reason. my buddy's has them in there trucks and they will pull trailers up hill faster then anything else around and burn the breaks off going down hill's.
