I’d really like to get a manual because they seem fun to drive and engaging. If not now, maybe later down the road, whenever I decide to get a new car. We currently own a manual 1998 geo tracker at our farm that i’ve driven a few times on the road, and I enjoyed it and I think with practice I could get much better at it.
I talked to my dad about buying a manual and he told me i’d hate it and automatics are much better since theyre easier to use. Hes driven manuals in the past so I think he knows what he’s talking about and I can see his point, but do you think daily driving a manual car is too hard and impractical? Are they really so difficult to use that id hate it? My dad’s worries were that I couldn’t share my car with other people and I would have trouble shifting from a stop on a hill. Could some manual owners share some advice?
