    Automatic, but I’d love to learn stick! We just didn’t have a car I could learn on.

    I can drive a standard but I sadly have an automatic.  When I was looking at cars I wanted a standard but couldn’t find one that met my budget.  My parents ended up finding me a reliable used car for a steal but it’s an automatic.  So I got stuck with it.  I want my next car to be a stick though.  Which might be a problem since the husband doesn’t know how to drive stick yet.

    Automatic!  But I can drive a stick… just not very well, depending on the day.  Wink

    We have an automatic, but I strongly prefer a manual.

    I can drive both, but sitting in grid lock in my manual transmission car made my leg tired, so when I bought my new car I went with automatic.  Also, we were thinking we could reduce to one car when we moved in together, and my fiance can’t drive standard!

    My first car was an automatic, which was super easy to learn to drive.  I still had to go to driving school, and my mom made me learn manual (just in case there was an emergency which required me to drive stick).  I didn’t think manual was that hard to learn either, but in my family the person sitting shotgun does all the shifting, so I guess I already understood the concept.

    I tried so hard to learn to drive a manual but I’m just not very good at it. It flips me out when someone gets behind me and I get all nervous and end up stalling the car, lol. I do a ton of city driving so a stick isn’t really a good idea since I’m not that confident with it.

    Manual! You have more control over the car that way, look totally cool, and save money on the car and money for gas. Vroooom
