For a car to move from point A to point B, It needs to have a working transmission. The transmission transfers power from the engine to the axle in the most efficient way possible. This is achieved through varying of gear ratios. In lower gears more power is supplied to the axle while the speed remains low. When higher gears are engaged the speed increases while the power reduces.
Everyone has their own preference when it comes to transmissions. Some argue that manual is better than automatic and vice versa. In my own opinion, both transmissions are good, one transmission may be good in a certain area but rubbish in another area. The major advantage of automatic transmission is that it is easy to use. Most new drivers find driving cars with automatic transmissions easier. Automatic transmission is also great for beginners when driving in hilly areas. Starting a manual car from a dead stop on a steep incline sometimes proves to be very difficult.
On the other hand, manual transmissions excel in providing the driver with an engaged feel while driving. They also give the driver much control over the car. Your car is also less likely to be stolen if it has a manual transmission. A manual transmission is also cheaper to maintain.
