    i agree, if youre more of the type na basta makarating sa destination, go for matic.. but if you want the "real driving experience", edi manual...

    I drive a manual but I'd still prefer a matic.

    Boring din ang manual sa long drive. With the MB100, halos hindi na ko umaalis ng fifth gear (lakas kasi ng torque). Anything between 70kph-135kph can be covered by a single gear.

    Downshift lang ako kapag overtaking sa national highway.

    If you have a female relative who will use the car, a matic is a good choice especially if they'll use it a lot.

    Sometimes a matic can be just as fun as a manual, it depends on the transmission. Some transmissions are really boring, while some transmissions constantly remind you they're working by shifting into the next gear a bit more firmly.

    If you're a new driver, a manual is the way to go. Kasi if you get a matic kagad, masasanay ka dun masyado. IMO when you learn to drive a stick, and you shift to matics, you have no problems. But if you start with a matic, and then shift to driving stick, usually you'll forget to step on the clutch and stall the engine. Don't ask how I know

    It means you drive with your foot on the clutch.

    You may not be pressing on the clutch but as your foot gets more tired, you will unknowingly exert weight on the clutch pedal. A partially engaged clutch is one of the worst possible things you could do to a car.

    Unless you want to intentionally burn the clutch.

    or started with a manual for a couple of years, moved to matic for a couple of years, then used manual for a couple of days...kinabukasan, subconsciously na naghahanap ng clutch pedal sa matic na kotse! bwahahahahaa. happened to me na yan.

    maintenance - automatic might be expensive, especially na second hand kunin mo.

    handling - depende sa condition ng car; in general, automatic is far easier to handle; pero pag-sanay ka na sa manuel, driving will come just as easy.

    consumption - in general, automatic consumes more fuel; though "some" say that in the case of honda city a/t cvt, it is more efficient that its m/t counterpart (none has made the some observation as with mithsubishi lancer a/t cvt with respect to its m/t counterpart); at the end of the day, it is a matter of preference: less fuel efficiency but slight ease in driving, expecially in heavy traffic vs. fuel efficient mannual tranny.

    for a newbie driving his first (second hand) car, a manual tranny would provide him the necessary driving initiation.
