"Automatic Stick-Shift"[edit]

I seem to recall that the VW Beetle's "Autostick" was marketed as "Automatic Stick Shift." Was this a registered trademark or formal name for the feature? 66.234.222.96 (talk) 13:29, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

The first application of the Volkswagen Automatic Stickshift transmission came in the 1968 Beetle, which was also the first Beetle to offer IRS (independent rear suspension) instead of the swing-axle version transmission as used on the '68 & earlier Beetles with the traditional 4-speed manual transmission. In 1969, the Automatic Stickshift transmission option began being offered on the Karmann Ghia; VW dropped the Automatic Stickshift trans altogether in 1976 on the Beetle & Super Beetle. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.242.248.77 (talk) 02:12, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
