Automatic transition vehicles have come a long way in recent years, so much so that many people do not believe it makes sense to choose manual gears. When you have a manual vehicle you’re constantly changing the gears and slowly releasing the clutch to pull off. When you drive an automatic, you only use two pedals rather than three, whilst you never need to take your hands off the steering wheel.
This means it’s an easier, more comfortable and relaxing ride, especially on a long journey, so why would you really ever go back to a manual after an automatic? Well, some people do like control over their gears, and if for example, you live in a rural area where off-roading is required, being able to choose the ideal gear for the job is important. There’s also the case that many people grow accustomed to engine braking rather than always hitting the brake pedal. This is perfectly safe and makes sense in a manual car, but when you drive an automatic all you can sometimes do to slow down is keep hitting the brake pedal, which can be rather annoying depending on how your car shifts gears.
