And 'prefer' doesn't cover it. Must have, full stop.
Interesting that the poll result was 2:1 for automatic.

Manual!

Better fuel economy, Lower initial cost, lower maintenance expense, ability to start a car, when bad starter or low battery condition exists.

manual! Better MPG, usually cost less to buy and if the battery dies i can push start it (forward and in reverse) Can't do that in an automatic. I'm a mom of 3 boys and I've taught my 2 older sons to drive a stick. I read a report a few years ago that said the armed forces were switching over to automatics because most kids could not drive a standard. So sad.
