Depends, you want me to drive it, or do something with it that EP's naughty word filter will probably turn into *********
*weird look*...but...you don't have lady-parts...your a guy.
How are you supposed to......
I'm never diving one of your cars ever!!!!!!
I've mostly owned manual-shift cars my entire life. The couple of cars I've had that have had an automatic, I haven't owned long. I just couldn't get used to them. Kept wanting to push the clutch in to start it. :-/
I have to admit that automatics suck a lot less than they used to. Cars with four-cylinder engines and an automatic in particular used to be real dogs. With 5 or more speeds, computer control, and a lockup torque converter you're not continually wasting power stuck in the wrong gear like you used to be. A lot of the automatics also have a "sport mode" with something like paddle shifters or a "tip" shifter so you can shift manually if you want. Often, the automatic version of a car now has better 0-60mph time and better fuel economy than the manual version because the computer can pick shift points better than a human can.
So for me it's still manual but it's largely out of force of habit.
I like manuals, too, but the choice isn't really a rational one any more. The cost/benefit analysis for a daily driver now leans in favor of automatics. It's also getting harder and harder to actually find a car with a manual transmission in it, unless you special-order it or you buy something that's considered more-or-less a sports car.
manual..(stick)..it's real driving and a testament as to how good you are as a driver.
i agree..but automatics are great for eating and driving.
Both automatic is still faster in some ways but there is a reason shelby GT have six speeds as automatics will not take that much power on the street.
Automatic. Why bother with unnecessary shifting?
Yeah but you're supposed to be focused on the road, not on pushing levers and stuff. That's why it's illegal to talk on the phone while driving, it's distracting.
s10 Chevy. 5 speed big whoop. it's a pain in my old ***. and it's flat in Dallas
Automatic.. unless you wanna buy a new clutch and gears :P
Just get in the car, woman. Let's go for christ's sake.
Automatic. It's been years I drove a stick shift, I bet I have even forgotten how to balance.
I don't know how to drive..
