Automatic or Manual Transmission: Which is better for you?

Whether you are a new driver or have been battling traffic for decades, the type of transmission you choose for your vehicle can have a profound impact on your own driving experience. Out of these two options, there is no objectively better transmission to go for; it all depends on the type of driving experience you are looking for, and how you use your vehicle. Making the right transmission choice can aid in fuel costs, keep you safer or make for a more comfortable or controlled drive in certain situations. So, to help you make the best possible choice, here are some things to think about when selecting a transmission type for your vehicle.

Are you a new driver?

New drivers should be a little weary of learning on automatic transmissions. Learning about clutch control and gear shifts is essential for any new driver to master their vehicle, but learners often opt to cut this step out by choosing automatic transmissions over manual ones. It is wise to start learning on the more complicated, manual type to become more familiar with operating any car. Once you have mastered that, then consider whether or not you would prefer an automatic.

How much time do you spend in traffic?

Long hours in the heat of a traffic jam can be a nightmare for drivers who are on the road for most of the day. For these people, manual transmissions can make driving a tiring experience, especially as far as your clutch-foot is concerned. These individuals might find that automatic transmissions give them a much more comfortable ride since there is no need to operate a clutch.

Do you need more control over fuel costs?

Manual transmission gives you much more control over your rev-counts than manual ones do, which means that they give you finger-tip control of the car. Automatic transmissions tend to handle this on their own, which might be convenient, but it takes away a lot of your control over the vehicle. This means that they generally burn through fuel much more quickly, and may even underperform in terms of power when compared to manual transmissions.
