EDIT: Whoops, this is D-Lew. I always forget to log my brother out when I come home from college.

Autos are more prone to problems, generally. Mine broke at 60,000 miles. Fortunately I had the ability to fix it myself, cost $500 and a couple of hours.

Well, drove for the first time today for an hour!
I paid 150 for 10 lessons, which is 15 an hour.

Enjoyed every minute of it! Was driving the new Ford Fiesta.

I found that I picked up the stopping/starting/changing gears rather fast, and he was impressed.

I had a few issues with not leaving enough room on the left with parked cars, and he had to control the wheel, haha, and one time where I stopped mid road, and almost had a car come into us, but other than that, I was happy with myself

Congrats!

Yeah should be up to speed on changing gears in no time, it only takes a few lessons to get he hang of it and at least then you have the option to drive manuals when you pass your test
