    to all 4x4 gurus,

    ok lang ba na automatic ang transmission ng 4x4? ano mga pros and cons nito?

    for me kasi mas practical ang automatic kung weekend warrior. wat ya think?

    IMO, maganda rin naman ang A/T, without the hassle of shifting gears while you fondle with your gf/wife/kabit/who-it-may-be, hehehe :D For offroading, better shift it to L1 a big no no in D. Plus the advantage over the manuals that the tranny is enclosed therefore, there's no risk of wet clutch.

    On the other hand, in M/T you control the engines power. When and where to put more power or not. :D Plus maintenance wise, mas mura mag alaga ng manuals. :D

    Final verdict: 50-50 basta't umaandar ng maayos at walang sakit sa ulo, "suportahan taka". 8)

    yung a/t dali umandar lalo na kung traffic. mas magastos nga lang sa gas.

    yung m/t mas mabilis arangkada. tama nga... you have more control with the engine power.:wink:

    the only advantage of AT is during traffic dahil hindi ka kakambyo.

    Sa 4x4 hindi ko ma-imagine kung paano ka babanat ng trick maneouvers, like 3rd gear sabay primera. etc etc.

    If you agree with me that offroading is all about control, then you know the tranny for you :D

    the auto tranny actually has a slight advantage in offroading (at least for beginners) because of the slushbox. this lets the car go along as slow as you want it to without stalling the engine, and it lets you ease out of sticky situations with less risk of putting on too much power and spinning the wheels.

    Base on my experience,
    Pag City driving, maganda ang A/T...smooth na smooth ang ride.
    Pag Hi-way driving, Manual naman ang maganda...sport na sport.

    Yun Lang po

    AT ..... slightly more fuel consumption. Kung honda AT, mag-ipon ka na pang overhaul nyaahahahaa :lol::lol::lol:

    splerdu::: If youre using 4low, MT and youre on 1st/2nd gear , you could totally forget the clutch as you would have a difficult time stalling the engine in Low range...... but of course this could still happen if you do a full stop without engaging the clutch :D
