I've heard it's because our country is so vast that automatics became popular for road trips. Although that doesn't really make sense to me because when I road trip I just throw it in the top gear and put cruise control on.

Although, have you ever seen New York traffic? I don't know what traffic is like in European cities, but I have never regretted a manual more than when I was stuck in Chicago traffic for 3 hours.

It's just more convenient to drive automatic. I know how to drive a stick, but I see no use for it in everyday driving. You can get slightly better fuel mileage if you're good at it. Obviously it's better if you're driving for performance, but how often do you get to do that? Most autos built in the last 5 years offer paddle shifting anyway.
>>
>>35608879
I have a WRX and the '14 didn't come in automatic. Even if it did, subaru CVT is dogshit.

But I do agree with you. In a perfect world, on nicer cars, I'd take an automatic for DD and a manual for my track car.
>>
>>35608879
>>35608935
how do the prices of the two types compare in general?
>>
>>35608964
Manual is pretty much always cheaper but it's a negligible difference.
>>
>>35608964
If you have two of the exact same cars, the manual tends to be cheaper because it's simpler and cheaper to manufacture.

Often in the American market though, due to the unpopularity of manuals, the only manual option you'll find is in the more expensive performance model.

08+ Civics are rare in manual but all the Si models are manual obviously. But the Si is a more expensive trim.

That actually hasn't been true for years. Pretty much any new automatic is going to get better gas mileage than their manual counterparts.
>>
>>35609049
Interesting to know, thanks for the info
>>
>>35609049
Thats false. Automatics add a lot of weight compared to manual. It really comes down to the gear ratios which is a crap shot but EPA ratings often put a manual as better than an automatic.

cheaper when you buy the car and then 0 maintenance unless you drive hard and require a new clutch (which is still pretty cheap).

>>35609049
>>35609064
no manual is always better MPG because you can never disengage an automatic from the engine unless you're putting it into neutral so there's always resistance. even if your car is fancy enough for "economic" and "sport" modes.

If you think mpg is determined by resistance when at a standstill... I feel bad for you son.

nigger unless you're racing regularly on tracks the current generation of auto boxes are better than a manual box.
>>
>>35609049
New automatics are optimized for the fuel efficiency tests, while manuals have to stick to a shifting pattern from the '70s (30 mph in 3rd gear, WTF).

So they'll be more economical on paper, but not in the hands of a competent driver who cares about efficiency.

Manuals have better fuel efficiency and need less servicing.
Automatics are easier to drive at the slight expense of fine control over speed

There is no way an auto can out shift a manual on a track.
>>
>>35612642

The only reasons you use a manual over auto are:

>cheap
>durability

That's it. A decent straight cut box will outlast anything else, but an auto will always shift faster - bear in mind modern paddle controlled boxes are technically autos, and can be used in 'manual' mode.

The only thing that's going to shift faster than a modern autobox is an air shifted sequential, and those are pretty much only useful in drag racing.
>>
>>35612143
That theory wouldn't explain why Americans have a high level of productivity (though decreasing a bit).
>>
>tfw uncircumcised American driving a manual
>>
>>35612742
It's not about how fast you shift, it's about when and which way you shift. For now humans have a much better idea on how to do this in racing.

Determining what gear to be in only based off of one variable, RPMs, is less efficient than basing your gear off of RPMs, upcoming hills/turns.

Because automatic needs more money and less neurons.

Americans don't give a fuck about pollution therefore

Well, I think its because its easier for most folks.

Mind you, I like manuals more, but dumbing something down makes it easier to use.

Imagine a microwave that required you to use a fucking clutch in order to shift into different temperature settings.

Imagine one that doesn't.

Which one sells more?

Not any more. That used to be true but they are probably within 10 or so pounds. Going back to the 90s the 4l60 is about 120 while the t-5 of similar capacity is about 100lbs. Auto's have even gotten lighter in comparison.

>>35609308
>cheaper when you buy the car
not any more, manuals are rare, so cost is more as there is less volume (often)
>no manual is always better MPG because you can never disengage an automatic from the engine unless you're putting it into neutral so there's always resistance.
learn how a car works. If you are getting better mpg with a manual its because less power is lost in that drivetrain. unless you are at a stop your car should be in gear, In a modern car if your foot is not on the accelerator then the engine is not getting any fuel, so this engagement you speak of would not matter

>>35612173
>Enjoy having to brake into a stop when a manual can just downshift
why wouldn't i just hit the minus button on my steering wheel?

an electronically controlled auto can shift faster than most people, a DCT can shift faster than any human.
>>
>>35612173
Great idea. Instead of putting the wear on a small, cheap part that's designed for it, put it on a large, ridiculously expensive part.

well manuals can have better fuel economy if you short shift, but we all know thats not fun and my straight piped acura sounds good so i let her roar any chance i get
>>
I always drive manually, not because I think it's superior, but simply because pretty much 100% of all cars here (Germany) are manual. If you decide to stick with automatics, you are unable to drive practically 100% of all cars here. Almost nobody here bothers with automatics, and I really don't know why. Never drove automatic and seriously only sat in one single automatic car ever. It's just how it is.
>>
>>35613841
>>35613745
your car can still be in gear and disengaged from the engine. that's the point being made.

Can confirm. My Mustang's last owner put a fucking stiff ass clutch in it to hold all of it's lol 260hp. Get mad calf jitters so bad I can barely back it out of the parking space without stalling it
