    Depends on the vehicle actually. Some matics are really slugish and boring to drive.

    If acceleration is good, I prefer MATIC.

    if you live or will be driving through in a high traffic area... you might want to consider automatic tranny.

    Daily driver, city driving, and you don't mind (a bit) lower gasoline mileage?

    Matic.

    (But then again, it'll all boil down to passion driving vs. comfort driving)...

    My cousin before had this dilema so to settle the score we went for a good test drive of both variants. It was one of the best ways to make that crucial choice.

    Nothing beats hands on evaluation because we all have different driving styles and habits.

    This way you can decide if an automatic is sluggish or not.

    Whoever said that should be hanged! Upside down that is hehe.

    First time I heard of a disposable tranny and there is no such thing.

    What is a fact though is that compared to a manual, an AT will cost more to repair.

    manual and matic transmission have there good points and bad points
    manual
    - ok mileage
    - fun to drive kasi pede mo ibirit kada gear
    - mejo nakakapagod pag traffic dahil sa clutch
    - pwede mo itulak pag naubusan ka ng battery
    - mejo mas simple ang maintenance

    matic
    - some say boring , pero minsan depende sa sayo yun eh
    for me pag long drive yes its boring , pero pag traffic its a divine gift
    - im not sure kung pano maintenance ng matic coz i havent tried pa
    - gas consumption slightly higher

    given this , yung choice mo eh magiging depende sayo , kung mejo sporty type ka and you dig or gsto mo yung mejo nakakainit ng dugo manual :D pero kung mejo laid back or you just drive for transportation matic :D pero still its your choice sir . just sharing my opinion :D
