Just rented an  automatic   to drive on my vacation.  In town, stoplights, a Dream.

On the open road, I think the auto held the  motor back. At 7300 feet,   I had trouble  doing 60 up hill. If it had a clutch,  I Know  it would have done 70.  My Mazda 323 with a 5 speed got out of  its own way!  Plus more gears for the hills.

Still, my MC with its 6 speed shifts Fast. I acually refer it in town to  a cage  with an auto.

Sow me a car hat gets 52 mpg like  my bike, I'll show you one with No Guts. The bike will do 120 (so it says!)

It depends on engine size and what the car is used for most often ie:racing,everyday use,long distance etc

Ha! I can't drive manual so I have to rely on automatic. But I hate driving. I live in a city and have probably clocked 20 hours of driving in the past 2 years. Honestly. I never drive because I either have someone else driving when I'm in the car or I'm taking a taxi or public transport.

I agree with tinfoil. When it comes to some races, automatics would be a benefit, but for the most part you can control better with the manual and never skip a beat. Come around the bend drop to second and take off.

Being from the UK, manual is the norm for me. I would choose manual over auto any day, purely for the better control and interactivity.

Manual transmission all the way. The thing is that in town with so many stoplights, more and more people switch to automatic.

I know many of you are discussing in terms of road driving, but I thought I'd give my 2 cents as an off roader, i prefer my manual tranny.. being able to utilize engine breaking without going into Lowrange or anything like that is great when the going gets rough for only short periods along a trail.  I find myself using the brake pedal far too much while wheeling in an automatic
