it depends on the car

big 4d saloons - automatic
coupes/sports cars in general - manual
4x4-manual

Manual, automatics cost too much to fix.

Manual!! Automatic is for women only! But isn't it so that most cars in America are automatic? Overhere almost every car is manual. I can't even really drive an automatic..i always wanna press the clutch..but there is none..i hate that.

I like auto sometimes. Manual if I want to save money on gas or repairs....but I shit car manual never shifts smoothly no matter how good you are at shifting.

Or it needs to be a sick car...imagine driving a sick Benz or some Porsche or Vette and being auto....lol

its funner to drive a manual as long as you're not sitting in bumper to bumper traffic.

you loose a lot of control over the car with automatics.

no dropping down a gear to boost your acceleration, no mashing down on the clutch to peel out your tires, etc

I'm guessing most that choose auto do so because they either sit in a lot of traffic (which does indeed suck in a stick) or they don't know how to drive a manual period.

i agree. i had a manual for 5 years. then went to an automatic and i kept hitting the fucking brake thinking it was the clutch. it was almost as hard going back to an automatic as it was trying to learn how to drive a stick.

definitely manual, automatics feel like bumpercars.

I haven't had a manual in years but I definitely liked it a lot more than my automatics. It's just straight up more fun to drive, and gives me an excuse not to answer my phone while I'm driving.

i havent driven a stick in like 3 yrs...i prefer automatic, its hella easier imo..manuals cool for racing n such but since i don't race and theres always traffic where i live i stick to automatic..manuals too much work n too much thinking
