Hi /o/
I have never drive automatic.
What is it like? Is there any benefits over manual?
>>
Maybe less weight in between your legs? If someone finds that to be a benefit?

Does tiptronic count?

You don't have to shift the gears yourself. Some people consider that a benefit

You'll be bored tbqh, just having two pedals and the wheel
>>
>what is it like
Your engine is never really connected to your wheels so driving it definitely feels a lot more disconnected. If you're used to driving manual you're going to get annoyed at how it shifts because most of them are either a second late when you're driving for fuel economy or a second too early when you're trying to go fast.
Kickdown is also really slow, so if you're trying to overtake on the freeway you'll be accelerating at a snail's pace for a few seconds and then your car finally drop down a gear.
A lot of them will shake when idling at a stoplight.
>>
>>14243094
The driving is numb kind of annoying, but I gotta say its pretty convenient in stop and go traffic or just cruising.
>>
The assurance in knowing you won't misshift and fuck your drivetrain.

Seriously stick is really just for boy racers with inferiority complexes so they fall back on their ability to drive stick. If flappy pedals are good enough for formula 1 it's good enough for me.
>>
>>14243192
It's nice to actually be able to control your tires though. In a dca its not the same feels. It's like having sex vs masturbating. Both make you cum, but one feels alot nicer.
>>
>>14243094
Some problems with automatic...
- You can't hold a gear when descending down a hill.
- You can't pre-downshift in anticipation of passing.
- The power doesn't feel as instant because it downshifts after you press the accelerator.
- Have to be more conscious of maintaining your speed in school zones, etc, while in a manual you can just pop it into a lower gear and idle through.
The problem with tiptronic is you have to consciously listen and look to see which gear it's in, in order to decide how to shift relative to that, while a proper manual is more intuition. Most people end up driving a Tiptronic in fully automatic mode with a "stab this paddle a bunch of times when you want power".
>>
>>14243204
Also many modern autos like the 8 or 9 speeds and cvts have major reliability problems.
>>
>>14243204
>- You can't hold a gear when descending down a hill.

I can and do.

>- You can't pre-downshift in anticipation of passing.

Ditto.

>The problem with tiptronic is you have to consciously listen and look to see which gear it's in

There's a gigantic number saying which gear it's in on my dash.

What I hate about it is having to go sequentially, not like 4th to 2nd.
>>
>>14243201
Driving a manual is more like masturbating because you have full control over every nuance, while driving an automatic is like sex because she will sometimes not clue in when you want to change the pace.
>>
Its kinda cool I guess.
I rented a 2015 Toyota Corolla S & a 2016 Chevy Cruze that had this feature (Tiptronic), and although I have never successfully driven a manual car before, it does feel pretty sweet making the gear changes. Getting up to 3k RPM and then shifting at the very last second. Felt really good.

It's also nice because you don't have to downshift yourself if you don't want, as the car will do it automatically when you're slowing down. Driving this for a couple of days at least gave me AN IDEA of how driving a fully manual car would work out.

t b h though i'd never make it a feature to look for in a car. if it's there, cool, I'd use it once in a while whenever I feel like shifting myself
>>
>>14243227
Exactly, you have to consciously look at the number on the dash. You don't have to look or think about it in a manual. It's like walking - you don't have to look or think about which foot is in front, you just "know". Once you've been driving a manual for a while it because second-nature.

>>
>>14243094

You have to understand there are many types of automatic. /o/ likes to pretend all autos are 70s 3 gear slushboxes.

You've got sport mode autos that shift like a mad cunt, tiptronics that are almost the same as manual (almost, not quite), economy autos that will put you to sleep in 10 minutes or less, god awful cvts, and some others i can't think of right now.

There are all sorts of autos. Some really aren't that bad.
>>
>>14243251

How is this any different than a tiptronic? I have the mental capacity to remember how many times I've shifted up/down and thus know which gear I'm in anyway.

You don't have to make shit up. You like driving manual and that's fine man. No one is giving you shit about it, no need to defend it.

autoshitfters are scared of all those numbers, but it is similar to jump on a bicycle and trying to start on 18th gear.

On older cars, you just listen to engine. It is easy and feelgood.

Even F1 drivers have gear indicators because while they too are capable of counting they too need to be reminded every now and then because who is going to be thinking "4th to 5th" when at the same time Kobayashi appears to be targeting you as his next kamikaze victim and you need to be evasive.

You need that number there on a sequential box as well. An H gate is much more natural to remember to the point where you literally don't need to think about it because it becomes instinct.

>>14243094
A lot of automatics can vary, automatic Corollas can feel like sponges whereas automatic sports cars can be extremely fun. We're getting to a point where automatics or assisted-manuals are becoming faster than manuals.

That being said, maybe 1% of the people on here have owned or even driven a high-end sports car, so all they're exposed to is god awful shitboxes with CVTs and bad autos.

For shitboxes, manual wins, for sports cars it really depends on the car. The Snek wouldn't be the Snek without the manual.

Personally I'm used to driving manual, so driving automatic feels wierd. I can appreciate it on the track though.

Yeah that's because it's a shit car. Drive something with a good transmission. The new Charger SRT/Hellcat and IS350 have really, really good torque converter automatics.
>>
Everyone says it's less work than manual, but your right foot is either going to be on the accelerator or brake. There's no such thing as coming to a stop, putting it in neutral and pulling the handbrake up so you can rest for a minute before the lights turn.

Manual cars are way more fun to drive than automatics. I picked up my first manual a year and a half ago and don't plan on going back. I like being able to control power delivery and the tactile sensation of shifting gears is very satisfying.

I'm glad most people don't know how to drive stick because that means nobody will ask to borrow my car and it's way less likely to get stolen. It also means that car enthusiasts will have a much easier time getting a hold of older manual cars because most people can't drive them. So that benefits us if most people hate manual cars.
>>
>>14243192
I have that assurance anyway and I drive manual.
>>
>>14243321
It's an automatic based on manual gearbox architecture. Instead of clutch plates and a torque converter it uses the gear system of a manual with a computer controlled dual clutch system, one clutch for odd gears and the other for even. Here's more info:

your entire post is invalid because you can select any gear on a proper auto trans

1-2-3-D straight on the floor

i always hold 1st gear to roll into the throttle on launches because WOT will light the tires

i don't have to "look" at anything, i just rip it down into gear

Still boring, you didn't actually do anything to get the speed.

With a manuel you'd have to select the right gear for the speed you want, revmatch it, and then floor it. In the auto you just press your foot to the floor. Gay as fuck to be honest family.

I bet you also buy all your furniture from Ikea.

>>14247802
it doesn't harm it at all. at low speed i'm already in 1st gear. by selecting 1st on the column I'm just locking it out of shifting to 2nd

in 1st it will hit the rev limiter unless i select 2nd; but the cool thing about an auto car, i can select 2nd gear when i'm still pulling in 1st- and it will shift at redline at WOT every single time

>>
>>14247882
The clutches inside your auto tend to disagree. The friction discs still slam into each gear at full speed when redlining, they still slip and burn up a little bit of material in the process, it's just like flooring a normal automatic everywhere and having the gears kickdown and destroying a little bit of life-span day by day.

Syncrows in manuals will also do this if you race all the time, but who's stupid enough to race their DD...daily.
>>
>>14247951
I literally would prefer a 200hp shitbox to a 500hp supercar. With the auto you're just along for the ride, with the manuel you're part of the action.

>but who's stupid enough to race their DD...daily.

my car isn't a daily driver. and i don't even race it that much when i do drive it

i won't argue that redline causes more wear - but if you think that selecting a gear harms a transmission your a moron

if i don't select the gear i can either

>full throttle in D, spin my tires and bounce the limiter into 2nd gear
>feather the gas while spinning into 2nd

either one is slower than taking off in 1st manually

Autos are fine. I prefer them in appliance cars. Shifting for labor sucks when a machine could do it for you. That said people who actually spend money on sports cars with automatics disgust me.

>>14248222

Why the fuck do CVT's have predetermined ratios anyways? Isn't the whole point of a CVT is to simply keep the engine at a specific RPM without using traditional gears?
>>
>>14248257
Yup. But most manufacturers do this in "sport mode" to make it feel like a traditional transmission. I really don't understand it because there's no upside: there's worse fuel economy because CVT power loss, there's still rubber band effect, and you're not at optimal RPM anymore.

If I'm not driving a car to enjoy it an auto is great. I tend to drive cars to enjoy them most of the time, but there's some cars where it would probably be too much and I would prefer an auto. If I'm trying to help someone decide on a car to buy, I'll usually ask them if they enjoy the act of driving or if they just enjoy the convenience of it but see driving as a chore. If they enjoy driving, I'll recommend they get something manual. If they see driving as a chore, I'll recommend they get an automatic.

Some dumb reason like people want their car to feel like a normal car or something. I think the idea of putting shift points in a CVT is one of the dumbest ideas car manufacturers have had in a long time.

It's also an economical decision. An automatic car will be slower (acceleration and top speed), so you have to get a bigger engine to compensate for that. And after that you're losing money on every mile due to the worse fuel economy. Money you could have spent on your car.

That's exactly what he's saying. A torque converter never truly connects the engine to the transmission. On a manual, RPM's of the engine is directly tied to how fats the wheels are spinning. In an automatic, you can rev the engine higher or lower than the wheel's speed.

You are a fucking idiot.
