Default Re: Getting a car, can't decide

what can you drive? if you can only drive auto then buy an auto. Manuals are overrated when you're driving a Ford Taurus or some shit like that. There's no point. You just end up becoming irritated when shifting hundreds of times while driving from your house to the 7-11. If you're buying say, a Ferrari or a nice import like a Skyline then consider getting a manual.

Yea, like rifle said, it's just a car that you don't really care about and you just drive it for daily commutes or for your errands etc.

I'd say small car, 4 or 6 cyl, manual. Large car, 6 or 8 cyl, get an auto.

Many small 4 cylinder cars can't even get out of their own way with an automatic. A 6 year old on a tricycle could out accelerate one.

I personally don't like automatics, even if it is just a short drive or being stuck in traffic. It makes driving much less boring.
