Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am a woman and am looking for a Z car!  I don't want to get taken!  I don't
understand the difference between the turbo automatic and the 5 speed non
turbo pricing.  Can someone explain that to me?  I understand that the turbo
will cost more at the gas pump. Is it more expensive to work on?

Also go to YouTube and c if u have guys there that may show it on video. Knowledge (from experts) is power, lol. Wish u well in ur education!
