I have had several 900 and all have been five speeds. So four years ago when I came across a 1990 convertible that was an automatic, I had the transmission rebuilt.Unfortunately it's getting harder to find people that can do it, there still may be somebody out there but the transmission shop that said they could do it could not do mine successfully.It only lasted 3000 miles before second gear went out.so I did what I knew I should have done in the first place and put a 5-speed in it.It was an expensive mistake and of course pulling the engine out a couple of different times it's kind of a hassle.I've had the transmission in there now for the four years and my wife loves the car.That's just one person's opinion I would definitely do the 5-speed.The three speed on the highway just doesn't drive very well considering you're at 3500 RPMs at 65 miles an hour. Good luck with whatever you choose to do. You may be able to adjust the bands and change the fluid and everything could be alright who knows.
