I drive a 6-speed manual daily, not sure i get your point
Do everyone know how to drive manual there?
A lot of people do actually. Not as much as international countries of course, but a lot of people in the US know how to (and prefer) to drive standard.
Over time that number should decline though as fewer manual options are available and as younger drivers simply just drive automatics.
International countries=you either know how to drive manual or you dont know how to drive a car.
Most people know how to drive manual because it's better. Although a lot of americans just don't like driving them in traffic and prefer automatics
There's that...and the fact that some of the countries drive on the other side of the road...with their steering wheel on the other side of the car. That too.
And the fact that most 'Mericans don't spend as much time outside of their country as others.
'Murrica...fuck y'all that's why.
Too lazy to change gear?
Too lazy to do anything to be honest. I'm 'Murrican as shit and proud the fuck of it.
In traffic, it seems so. I love it and will only be forced into a automatic
I miss driving standard cars.
Good tip. Lock your doors. Then you shit has a less chance of getting stolen. Simple.
I can't tell you how many cases I get of people who had their cars stolen. I always ask three questions.
1. Were the keys in the car?
2. Was the car running?
3. Were the doors unlocked?
If you answer "yes" to any of these, then it's your own damn fault.
If there werent for manual I would fall asleep while driving.
never learned to drive manual
My girl knows how to use a stick shift though. mmmhmmm
never learned manual. that's a lie. i did and can do it just not well. need like a week of practice to get shifting proper and not stalling on hills.
i don't like driving manual because 1) it doesn't make a difference (it's not really better in any way, shape or form) and 2) i do too much other shit to have to shift too.
It's better in the sense that have complete control over the car
In some cases manuals used to be cheaper than automatics as well. Aren't they more fuel efficient as well?
changing radio, talking, reaching for things, texting, taking pictures or videos, eating, drinking, spacing out, blah blah blah
so do i. just because you can shift down or up at whim doesn't mean you have any more control than the transmission that does it faster and cleaner than a human.
but, if you want to say you do, i have my manual version in the bmw that lets me shift at will. gives me better acceleration cuz i can shift at 6,800 instead of 3,500, but aside from that...eh.
