Automatic or Stick

Recommended Posts

I prefer sticks even in traffic over automatics. I dont like driving automatics= I seriously doubt ill ever buy an automatic car unless the car i for somereason fall in love with isnt available in stick-

 

stickshift- the only kind of cars i have ever had.

having a manual transmission doesn't = better gas mileage. it gives you the ability to have better gas mileage but i actually get much, much worse mileage per tank of gas.

let me dwell on this.. yes as S.Hawking said, if it is in gear... it will drive off.. how ever.. if you were to leave it in 4th or 5th.. its not gonna get any where considering theres not enough rpm's to even get the car moving. i work at circuit city doing car stereo/car security, and yes we are not supposed to do remote starts on manual tranny cars.

 

i drove automatic for about a year then i got a stick... now i cant stand to drive automatic. i think that automatic is the lamest thing ever, absolute control over your vehicle is prime.. even in city traffic.. you can down shift for a nice little kick to get around some one.. also revving up to scare pedestrians who think they are about to cross when they arent supposed too.. it seriously takes 1 day to learn the basics of stick... and if you can drive stick you can drive anything. bottom line.. no matter what stick owns automatic. (period)

i hate how in a lot of automatics just taking your foot off the break will make the car start moving forward.

 

get a manual.. its nice to have that much control over the car. granted it depends on what you're using it for, but the only people i've ever heard say that automatics are better than sticks are the ones who can't drive stick. i'm sure you'll like it once you learn
