    I learned how to drive on a stick, but I was always so nervous driving a stick when I first started driving that I prefer auto.

    I prefer automatic, but I can also drive manual (and have driven manual). I'm kinda similar to soccerboy22.

    I drove standards for 22 years. During that time automatic transmissions were vastly improved. I don't miss the gridlock crawl with a clutch. Automatics for me now.

    Re: Automatic or manual

    I can drive a tractor with 16 gears. I love racing through the gears in a good sports car or a motorcycle. But for everyday driving I'll take an automatic and even then sometimes I like putting it in low and then popping up

    Re: Automatic or manual

    Two boyfriends tried to teach me how to drive stick shift and it just wasn't for me. It's weird how so many of my boyfriends drove manual vehicles...
