Yes Automatic tranny guzzles more fuel, yes it wears the brake pads quickly. Just imagine yourself commuting in the heavy Lagos traffic to VI and back. You need some relief from all the clutching down and shifting. This is a trick I do: When driving an auto tranny, shift back to neutral when you come to a stop in traffic. Make this a habit and you will notice the difference. Always keep your eyes on the tachometer so you know how your car is idling.

Anybody can drive an automatic, even someone who doesn't know how to drive.

But anyone who can drive a manual, can drive any car.

As an enthusiastic driver, I'd always go for a 6 speed manual.

An automatic's not regarded as a Driver's Car.

Manual is just the bomb with you having more control but in a crazy city like lagos where it is possible to spend 4 hours of bumper to bumper driving i just might go for an auto drive vehicle. Anywhere else, gimme that manual V6 or V8

if i'm driving anything six cylinders and above i'll go for manual!! but if it's the regular 4 cylinder car those lazy Bottom cars then let the auto do the shifting while i do the singing!!, can't wait to lay my hands on a v8 manual!! any body driven one? what it feels like?

Those(smart and intellint people) who invented auto(after manual)obviously had good reasons and pple think they prefer manual coz of jumpstart and all but its all too myopic. To start with, the aging population probably wld say AT coz its easier and perhaps their hands have gone pale with MT.And about learnin both, its wise to learn with Mt first just so u aviod embarrasment.That leaves me on the fence rite?, NO. I'll go wid AT. Theres no point in proving ur vigour by driving MT and forcin advantages which r way down the line and pessimistic 4 dat matter. I rest my case with AT.

honestly speaking,i prefer the manual transmission.because of the way it's designed,you are pretty much in control of the car.automatic transmission vehicles are okay to drive and are good for those who are learning to drive for the first time.here in the U.S.,a lot of people,some africans included complain that manual transmission involves a "lot of work" to drive!!! i guess constantly changing gears would be considered "a lot of work"!!! that's why i believe manual transmission sets you apart from the crowd who don't want to be bothered with the "hard work" involved in driving manual transmission.also with manual transmission,you can tell who's an experienced driver and who is'nt.most people choose automatic because there's little guesswork involved.just push the gear stick down to "D" and you are good to go!! a little child can easily do that,that's why it cannot be compared in any way with manual transmission driving.

i use an automatic tranmission and i think i like it.depending on which part of the country you want to use the car also,like Lagos were there is lot of hold up the Automatic transmission will be better for you.its also east to drive. to me it does not have any disadvantage except that if you start with Auto to drive it might be a little difficult to use a manual later on but you can still use it later on.

I started my driving with Automatic Gear, Driving a Manual was a big problem for me, i had to take lessons from a friend. Cos i looked like a Wackass in front of My friends who think i cant Drive

Verdict : MANUAL IS BETTER
