    What is important is to remember that -

    D is for Day mode
    N is for Night mode and
    R is for Race mode

    i believe many motoring journalists will agree with you. putting it on N during longer waits, is the more logical thing to do.

I haven't driven A/T cars that much, so i really really can't tell the better one objectively. Based on car racing games naman... manual trannys get the better edge, d ba? and i prefer it too. Pros and Cons..., maintenance cost, acceleration.. etc. Love to hear your insights mga pare. I appreciate it!
    for me AT is better in city driving while MT is better for highway driving

    Why bother with N? I just put my AT cars in Park if I'm waiting a long time. It's especially true with our CVT-equipped 2013 Nissan Rogue.

    When I mean a long time, I mean a waiting time of say at least 1.5 minutes.

    i don't know about the new P, but in my old P,
    at P, and i get bumped from behind, the P brake might break.
    so i put it in N, then put on my handbrake.

    i use P when there's little danger of getting bumped from behind, e.g., garahe.

    Correct.. P means Park.. so you put it on P when your car ia already parked.. also putting it in P is makes you prone to mistakenly put the car in Reverse accidentally.. thinking you shifted on D.

    but i can imagine jun's "waiting scenario".
    he's probably the only car on the wide-streeted block.
    little danger of getting bumped.
    and if he does get bumped, "that parking pawl will probably be the least of his worries".

    I guess you have your reasons. But these are my reasons why I shift to N instead of P under similar circumstances:

    1. N is just a notch from D. P is 3 notches away.
    2. You will pass through R when shifting from D to P and back, which makes the transmission momentarily engage the R clutches twice. I perceive this as unnecessary wear
    3. Finally, and it has already been mentioned, you could accidentally end up in R when you meant to be in a ‘safe’ gear (P or N).
