    Default A/T vs M/T

    HI GUYS, how many of you find Auto Cars more fun to drive than manual ones and i think M/T cars are not a real fun to drive because comfort level is less as compared to the auto ones!!!

    manual is a heavenly transmission
    auto gets boring
    and automatic cars consume more fuel than manual cars

    Manual tranny FTW!
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    if you have to press your clutch pedal 300, 000 times from home to work and work to home you'll switch to auto

    plus all those who says auto isn't quick that's either they are saying it just because they heard someone saying it or they don't know how to ... Hondas just need a lil bit of flooring the gas pedal and toyotas need O/D and see the response then
