You can't rev match in an automatic, therefore taking turns fast and coming out of them faster is limited. Driving a manual for years and borrowing my moms auto Civic I forgot there was no clutch and ended up tapping the brake pedal a little too hard lol.

Why limit yourself? Why not just have your "family car" have a stick as well?

It's not a "real" SUV if it doesn't have two sticks and Hi and Low range 4x4. Raising kids didn't seems to stop my grandmother or my mother from driving stick. Every vehicle in my family, with the exception of my grandmother's last car has been manual and my grandma only drove an auto in her last years because, and I quote; "I've been alive for over 80 years, survived two world wars and the great depression and after all that I raised three kids. I learned to drive in a Model "T" farm truck. I've earned the right to be lazy" - Grandma.

Myself personally I'm going to continue the family tradition of only driving manuals.

Manual without a doubt... why?
-FASTER than the at variants with the same engines
-More contol over the vehicle in extreme weather/racing
-Much more durable (if you know how to shift properly)
-Better gas milage
-Less expensive to buy/repair
there's only two reasons i can think of why an at would be better:
-If you're too lazy to drive it/learn it
-If you're trying to get some he@d the shifter can be troublesome lol

I prefer and own a manual. It keeps me more engaged and in control while driving, and I feel good thinking that I am exercising a skill whenever I drive. Many people in the USA do not know how to drive a manual at all, but I do. It is a small, even trivial thing, but it is still nice to me.

i have an automatic now (didnt have a choice parrents bought it for me), but when i get a new car next summer its gonna be a stick, and im about 90% sure its gonna be a genesis coupe 3.8 track..

Hope you know,
most the high end cars are only semi auto.
just because it's faster that way.
