* What percentage of americans can actually drive a car with a manual transition?
* I've heard the running joke that the vast majority can only drive autos. Is there any truth to that?
meh, you can choose what you want to drive since they're priced similarly, maybe a $1,500 difference. most people pick automatic, but my car's a manual.
I guess it beats being too poor to afford an automatic and pretending like its your national preference to drive a manual amirite?
In the Netherlands (and the rest of Europe?) we got two types of driver's licenses.
1. Normal, you can drive both manual and automatic
2. Automatic, for untermenschen who can't drive.
What about the USA?
>yuropoors need a license to drive standard
That's a joke right?
Where I live, is it roughly a 65/45 automatic-manual ratio. Not sure if it is similar for the rest of the country.
Since I have a 120-mile daily commute, my work truck in an automatic. Though my "fun" car is a manual.
It would probably depend on the region.
In Michigan, i'd guess that about half the population can.
I can't speak for the rest of the country, particularly people that aren't nestled in the heart of the American auto industry.
Vast majority drive auto's but you must keep in mind the vast majority also buy crossovers don't like cars to begin with
With cars made for enthusiasts you get ratios like pic related
Everyone who drives manual here takes their test in auto because the instructors are massive faggots about standard drivers. You're only allowed to start in first, I don't think you can downshift and you have to keep both hands on the wheel like 99% of the time despite the fact you have to fucking shift.
Learning to drive a manual transmission is not required to get a drivers license here.
I don't know what %, but most can drive a manual.
I have an auto in my car and truck.
Is automatic better in snow to you?
