I want to get a Honda City 2003-04 model as my first car inshAllah and need some suggestions regarding whether I should go for Auto or Manual Transmission. I have just started learning to drive and Auto transmission seems to be a better option to me purely because of convenience, but I would like to know the advantages and disadvantages of Auto VS Manual transmission in this car to make a final decision.
Also, I don't have prior experience of maintaining a car so any tips will be very helpful. I would not like to visit a mechanic regularly so please guide me how I can ensure this.
Honda Atlas offered Vario transmission in Honda City 2004-2008 model. Well Vario doesn't enjoy good repute in Pakistani market due to its comparatively short life, complex system and incompatibility with CNG. So if you are looking forward to buy Honda City Automatic make sure it has never been converted to CNG and has low numbers on odo meter.
