I would prefer automatic. I am so confused with the gear box. I can't handle this during driving.

Automatic is smoother, when changing gears there is a slight decrease in speed, however I'm thinking of buying a manual car just because I think changing gears is what driving is all about haha

Definitely manual; I find it so satisfying when I change gear perfectly smooth, it’s probably one of the most satisfying things about driving!

Isn’t the hassle of gear changing the reason why people get automatic? Just curious

Don’t you just love driving a hassle free automatic though, without having to worry about the gear changing and clutch?

Manual. Automatics are boring. Gears are fun.

Manual seems like a lot of hassle doesn’t it? Just curious

Depends on what type of driver you are. I like using gears and holding it is gear to drive out of a roundabout. But yes I traffic sometimes it can be a bit annoying. I just find automatics dull to drive.

Possibly, but we’re all different people with different preferences. I don’t enjoy Physics so I’ve chosen not to do a degree in it. Doesn’t mean everyone else will make the same decision!
