Although most of the people prefer vehicles with automatic transmissions there are some reasons why they really don’t make any sense at times. A glimpse of interesting facts on manual preferred over automatics
Need of automatic transmission :
If you live in a crowded city or area where bumper to bumper traffics are common and a daily routine for you, then an automatic transmission will make some sense. They will let you relax a bit. But if you live in less crowded areas and also have your daily travel on highways or through main roads then definitely you shouldn’t adopt for a car with automatic transmission.
Although automatic prove to be of great help and take your driving comfort to next level, they just don’t seem worth for taking over the manuals. Manual transmissions give the feel of controlling the vehicle and making it roar more. Apart from that, an automatic transmission consumes fuel considerably higher than a manual transmission. Plus there is a added disadvantage of the extra weight due to the automatic transmission. These transmissions are incredibly heavy and consume fuel at a higher rate. This results in reduced fuel economy of the vehicle. Hence manual transmissions will save you a lot of money.
Automatic transmissions even make it boring for launching your car and flaunting with it at times. Automatic vehicles with its complex construction and designing are expensive to buy. Hence even at this time you can save money. Thus if you buy a vehicle with a manual transmission, then you will save money while buying it. Then again you will save money by having a higher fuel economy with the manual transmission. So technically you’ll save a lot of money if you prefer a vehicle with a manual transmission rather than a vehicle with automatic transmission.
Maintenance Cost :
Apart from that, the maintenance cost of both the vehicles has a considerable difference. A car with damaged automatic transmission can cost you a lot more money than you will need to replace a manual transmission. Replacing or repairing an automatic transmission may seem to be a nightmare cause it costs a hell lot of money.
