    Get a car with a stickshift then......they are fun to drive even if you have some piece of shit Datsun B-210....you actually get the feel more in control of the car. They are good in the snow and if you get stuck or whatever. They suck in heavy traffic.

    I like an automatic, but stick feels like you're in a racecar when you're just accellerating to 35 from a stop.

    if your primary use is in a congested high traffic area, autmatic is the way to go.

    do you see taxi drivers using stick shifts?

    if you live in a less populated area, maybe stick shift could work.

    Stick all the way....you have much more control over the car, and it's more fun. Once you master it, stopping in traffic is no prob, so that shouldn't be a reason to not get it....

    Go stick!

    stick is the better of the two

    costs less
    faster(get more out of every shift)
    less maintenance fee's
    easier to upgrade( hook up engine and all)
    good cars come in stick
    better cars come in only stick
    the fastest street legal car on the world comes in manual only

    costs more

    has a governor chip(doesnt allow u to go as fast as u want)

    for lazy ppl
    neck snap factor (press gas too hard whiplash will own u)...so will arthritis.

    ^^wriot said it the best

    i wont ever buy an automatic ever again, most things have been mentioned... although another thing with standards is that they keep drivers more alert, less cause of accidents and falling sleep at the wheel.

    and i dont know if this is weird but i'am way more attracted to a guy that drives a standard then an automatic..heh.

    ^^^ It's all good because I'm more attracted to a girl that drives stick than automatic.

    Oh yeah, get a manual.
  15. automatic aint even driving...you might aswell use cabs or buses for transportation....
    driving is all about control.
