    My last three vehicles have been automatic. Before that, I owned a manual for four years.

    Automatic.

    It's a pain to find anything with a manual transmission anymore outside of a sports car or truck.

    Manual of course. Automatic is for people who have only one arm.

    Automatic. I've only driven a stick shift once, and I've decided that I really want to learn how to so my next car can be a manual transmission.

    Automatic's the only thing I can drive and half decent to say that. I've only been a car with manual a few times.

    Both, though the manual is more of a project car.

    Automatic. I'm considering getting a manual within the next few years, though.

    Automatic. I have to be able to eat and talk on the phone at the same time as driving. :cool:

    You are the kind of driver that reinforces my driving paranoia. :p

    Manual. More power, more control, more fun.

    I abhor automatic transmissions. I always feel like I should be knitting when I'm driving because it's so boring.

    automatic is hard enough for me to drive safely. [face_plain]

    but I voted 'don't drive' because I don't officially yet. :p

    I learnt in a manual... but loathed it. Now I drive in an automatic, and love it. I intend to avoid manual transmission like the plague.

    All of my vehicles have been automatic, though I do like the stick occasionally.
