Should I buy manual transmission or automatic transmission car..??

  • Manual transmission cars are the cars that allow the driver to change the gears as per driving needs and there is a manual clutch pedal used while changing gear
  • In automatic transmission cars, there is no clutch pedal, and clutch-plate mechanism is replaced with a hydraulic torque convertor.
  • Initial cost of manual transmission cars is low compare to automatic transmission.
  • Fuel Efficiency of Manual transmission is higher because of low energy loss of a clutch plate based system.
  • Preventive maintenance cost for automatic transmission car is slightly higher.
  • Breakdown maintenance cost of manual transmission car due to transmission related failures is lower compared to automatic transmission.
  • Manual transmission is less comfortable as the driver has to operate clutch to change gears and it can be lot of inconvenience in a congested city traffic.
  • Automatic transmission is highly recommended for stop-and-go congested city driving.
  • Alternatively, if you drive mostly on highways or out of city, where there is no much need to change gears frequently, you can buy Manual transmission car.
