if you are going to get stuck in bumper to bumper stop and go traffic than automatic is the only way to go

whats the point of having a sport car if its an automatic... note: all sport, super car racing are manual..
if its just for in town, slow driving, towing, big trucks,SUV, automatic well be better...

Automatic drivers are really stupid...
story:
One day i tried to sell my 89 FC (RX7) this stupid guy said "I'll buy your car, and what is that third pedal for?"
How Lame Can You Get!
And i didn't sold my car to him because he didn't know the third pedal was for.
Just in case if you ask what i drive now its still RX7 FD, garage most of the time.


Not many people knows the operation of a clutch...
Can you explain the operation of a torque converter?


its a bit complex how to explain the torque converter but, let say manual car uses clutch, while automatic uses torque converter.
Torque converter is exactly what it mean, its like an engine that creates pressure. And that pressure is transmitted to the wheel, making it turn. when you press on the gas( has to be on D(drive)) the engine speeds up and pumps oil into the torque converter, that will cause torque/pressure, and that torque will transmitted to the wheels. the more you press on the gas the more pressure you get. it is every complex unlike manual. but manual you have the control, automatic you don't. hopefully that helps, and if not open a book.

Science Rocks ! now there is cars with both manual & auto.. I'd go with that


well I like automatic for running errands and within the city traffic is a b!tch !

Manual for fun especially when driving a 4x4 in the dunes

meh the only use i could see for an automatic was if u like live in the rockies or have a VERY steep driveway...like my uncle in canada....nah it definately a manual for me...no serious drivers have auto's and those flappy padel gear leavers are only for people in porches with mid-life crisises inother words MANUAL!
