I gave up learning to drive but it was manual I was driving in.

I drive automatic. My brother’s previous car was manual, he tried to teach me but I didn’t like it.

Someone taught me but I’m genuinely terrible at it.

For a while I was driving stick shifts but now I drive exclusively automatic cars.

My first car was automatic. My friend taught me stick in a Mercury Sable in high school. Since, most of the cars I’ve owned have been manual.

I can drive an 18 speed and also split axle units.


I too can drive just about everything. Not the best with double clutch but I can get by and I have driven tractors and forklifts with some skill. It really is a skill but it’s learnable to most folk.

Yes. But I prefer an automatic.
I always heard that a manual saves on gas.

I drove a forklift when I worked at Sears but it was electric and pretty small. My first job out of the hospital my boss had rented or borrowed a dump truck. Kind of like a flat bed that raised up. It was way bigger than anything I had driven before. It was filled with junk but I got in and drove it myself to the landfill and emptied it and drove it back. Driven rented U-Haul trucks but those were easy.

I first learned on a stick. It’s alotta fun.

Saves brakes too. You can use a stick to decelerate where automatic is brake. There are some big advantages to a manual transmission…


Most cars in England used to be manual, but a lot of newer ones these days are auto.

I can drive a stick but I’m sure I’ll like automatic better. I think driving is very boring.

I used to always drive stick until I had kids. A free hand is required to drive with kids lol. Now i still drive automatic.
My favorite car was 3 on the tree.

Yes I drive manual, my current car is a manual. Tricky when you first get started but once you get the hang of it, it becomes automatic. Lol - a manual becomes automatic!
