I've owned one automatic in my life.

It was the last auto I ever owned, and ever will own.

I learned in a manual, had one for my first car, and have had five more manual cars since that awful automatic.

('91 MX5-MT, '85 190E-AT, '95 240SX-MT, '02 WRX-MT, '05 G35-MT, '86 MR2-MT, '07 S2000-MT)


You must have quite a bit of money.

Anyways I prefer manual and most likely always will unless I'm over 50 years old then I'll finally get an auto most likely.


Not really, I just don't spend much on anything else.

Those are cars I've owned, as well, I don't currently have them all. Just the WRX, which is paid off, the MR2, which was cheap, and the S2000, which I'll be making payments on for quite a long time...

Manual of course.. automatic cars consumes more fuel than manual cars...

Automatic => prefer non-racer or can be, cruising around, easy driving, no worries during up hill/winter times, no need to change glutches, shopping/workings

Manual => racers, fast cars are manual only.

some people get sick of shifting gears all the times, it gets boring and no free times to thinking while driving, always have to focus and stay awake all the times, feel happy for people who have manual during rush hours - 30 mins to 3 hours

Neg... Many fast cars don't have manual rather sport-tronic or that is similar.

fast cars are manual, nobody would wanna race with an automatic while all other racers got manual,

automatic fast cars => fast but not fast enough

manual fast cars => always stay fast

they are all manual but some come with an automatic transmission option or part of package deal.

Also, there are SST (short shift tranmissions) which are gay and take abit of fun out of it being a manual.. its actually sorta like a semi-manual and there are paddle shifters which quite a few cars have, located in the steering wheel :]
