Overall, I like a manual. Better gas mileage (if you can drive it right,) and people are less likely to steal it. But I like automatics for towing and for being on the paper route- throwing papers is a lot easier when I'm not haftin to shift, control the wheel, and throw a paper out the window. My Taco is an automatic, unfortunately, but I don't mind. I couldn't pass up such a truck for only $250!

I prefer manual because to me its more fun to drive… I see how it can get annoying in traffic from time to time for most people, but ive been driving manual as a daily driver for 12 years and shifting just comes so naturally to me that i reach to clutch when i come to a stop on my wife's auto…lol…
now, to be honest with you all… traffic is annoying on my wife auto just as much as my manual…

I share your sentiment. Not only about traffic, but driving manual IS more fun to drive. My first car was stick back in 1985 and I have never owned an automatic.

MANUALS ARE MORE FUN TO DRIVE. MY SON IS GETTING MY OLD TRUCK THAT'S MANUAL, SO HE WILL LEARN TO DRIVE RIGHT. EVERY BOY NEEDS TO KNOW HOW.
