    Driving around Los Angeles in traffic I prefer an automatic.  Out in the country a stick shift.

    It's a stick shift for me every time.  You have much more control over your vehicle if you drive a manual. 

    Unfortunately, in our "instant" society no one wants to take the time to learn to drive a stick shift.  It takes some time and skill to drive a manual properly.  A good manual driver will have all the passengers in the car believing they are in an automatic - no jerking, etc.

    Stick all the way! It's not for everybody and it takes skill. Just because you can move through the gears without cutting off doesn't mean you're a skilled stick shift driver. In addition to knowing your engine by sound and when to go to the next gear, you have to know how to do it smoothly.

    My favorite place to drive a stick is in Atlanta with hills and endless curvy roads. If I lived in a place like San Francisco, that'd be heaven, too.

    I used to let boyfriends drive my stick shift car, I learned better quikly. You don't drive my stick shift until you prove you know what you're doing.

    I prefer a manual gear stick car for driving instead of an automatic car. If you want to brush up your standard transmission driving skills or don't know how to drive one, visit my hub for step by step instructions: http://hubpages.com/hub/how-to-drive-a- … ep-by-step
