^ This. Great points, @MORTONOther than the first and last bullet, I would say manual.
So I say M/T all the way!
- You miss the feeling (they are fun)
- Shouldn’t really be messing with a kid while driving anyways (I have 4 so I would know. No telling how many wrecks I’ve almost gotten in trying to keep them straight in any vehicle auto or M/T)
- Note: I can still do whatever I need to do. A manual doesn’t take anymore attention than an auto IMO.
- Everyone should know how to drive a M/T. Your partner will appreciate the fact that you took the time to teach them.
Get a manual, and then come join us in “the clutch gang” thread!
