manual or auto

as the number of reconditioned and import cars increase in the city (& country), more and more people are shifting towards automatic transmission cars. earlier, people were mostly reluctant to buy old automatic cars as there were a dearth of mechanics of such gearboxes and also a lack of spare parts.

in today’s traffic conditions, it is becoming more convenient, to the extent of preference, to drive an automatic transmission car rather than a manual one.

we want to know if you prefer a manual transmission or auto?

    nice post, well i vote for MANUAL, cuz in manual transmission you can hear what your engine says, you can feel rhythm of your car’s engine,

    who agree’s with me :)

    Atleast not me cyrenity. I would agree to seskey. You looks a jerk when driving in cities like karachi and lahore and changing the gears after every minute. Auto is better option, off course.

    i would prefer auto at times when your feet gets numb by pressing clutch again and again. but i’ve heard that its parts are expensive and stuff.
    but i also agree with cyrenity bcoz with manual we can quickly gain speed but auto transmission has fixed acceleration.

    @shoaib,

    i practiced long to control my :(hard starring with single hand ;) and i had fun in in "traffic jams" and on highway/motorway drinking a colddrink, oh yeah sumtime cluth sucks at traffic jams, but i cant miss other things just becuz of clutch pad.
    anyway it’s a personal opinion.
