Why Manual Transmission Cars Will Always Win Over Automatic Transmission Cars

(Photo| Courtsey)

The main plus point to driving a manual car is that you have more control over the car itself.You just fill your boots when shifting from second straight to fourt or need a speed for that hill start.Also manual cars are less expensive than automatics, on average. This could largely be down to the fact that automatics are less popular and so there isn’t as much demand for them,drivers who just feel 'right' to change gears themselves(Some habits are just hard to change)

Also they are fuel efficient,it’s a common belief that automatic cars shift gears depending on what it thinks is appropriate for the road and speed while in manual you can adapt to the road and somehow minimize.It can be true to the past, and the Gap is quickly closing and automatics may have a better fuel consumption.Also Manual shift stick are easier to maintain.

Also in some countries like UK if you have a manual driver’s licence, you can drive an automatic car without restriction.However if you learned to drive in an automatic car, you’ll need to upgrade your automatic licence to a manual one. This involves having another driving test.
