  1. Every car I ever drove was a stick, until I had my son and bought a "Minivan" or, "Mommy Mobile". Wow, how life changes. For the better, of course. ;->

  3. It's been awhile since I drove a stick it would probably be fun to try it again but I do prefer
    an automatic. Much easier on the hills.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Automatic. I hate stick shifts. To much to think about.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I learned how to drive with a stick shift and I know that stick shifts are better than automatic. But, since I am deaf, I had to learn by feel. And, when I unintentionally wore out a clutch on my last stick shift, I decided automatics is better for me and have been driving them ever since..

    ReplyDelete
  6. Automatics for everyday driving, but stick shift is fun every once in awhile.

    ReplyDelete

  15. Stick shift! (But I'm European so..) I never forget the face of that Hertz guy when we picked up our car and I got in behind the wheel. He anxiously looked at my husband and said: it's a stick car does she know how to drive it?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I much prefer a stick shift! Just taught my daughter how to drive one, too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh it had best be automatic if we wish for the car to survive. I do understand the concept, but I have horrible shoulders, and we would rather not put them through the rigors of the shifting, nor the gears of the grinding.. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love a stick shift because they are more fun.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm comfortable driving either stick or automatic. I love the feel of a stick for moving around quickly, but the automatic is just so darn easy and handy in stop & go traffic.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Good question! I have always been a fan of the stick shift, but a few years ago we upgraded to a bigger car (to accommodate for our growing family) and it is not a stick shift. I love how smooth it is!

I've always driven a manual and have only been in an automatic once - it was a hire car my dad had for work (the only time he'd had an automatic) and on our first trip up the road he went to change gear and pushed the clutch all the way to the floor...except it wasn't the clutch it was the brake! I almost introduced my forehead to the windscreen! Fortunately there was no-one else on the road ;o)
