Reasons to Buy Automatic Cars over Manual Ones

Posted on 03 May 2018 by admin (0)

ManualIf you are thinking about a new car, and most probably your first one, the question whether to go for a manual or an automatic one is something every car owner has to decide on at some point. As the world becomes tech-savvy, there has been a shift from manual cars to automatic ones with more people globally embracing and loving the trend. If you are still confused, here are reasons why you should think of going for automatic cars.

 

 

 

Easier for You

As you will notice, you do not have to change gears or use the clutch continually. For new drivers, learning how to shift the gears and use the clutch can take a bit of time. This means that it is easier to learn how to drive an automatic car than a manual one.

Also when caught up in heavy traffic, it can be overwhelming trying to shift gears to the required pace.  Accelerating, slowing down, and stopping the car will require changing the gears and using the clutch. This will slow you down when you need to move suddenly. These actions may slow down not only you but other drivers, which to some extent is irritating.

Easier to drive on Hilly Terrains

If you have to start the car on a hilly point, it may be harder to get the right gear to start you off on the hill especially when you are a new driver. An automatic car is efficient at this. It will start and retain the power required to climb the hill without so much of your effort even when on rocky terrain.

 

Less Likely to Stall

Automatic vehicles are less likely to stall, in fact, the only time this can happen is if there is a mechanical problem. You are assured of a smooth ride no matter how many times you have to slow down or stop the car.

There is a popular notion that automatic cars consume more. This may have been true a few years back but it is not the same today especially if you get a newer car. The fuel consumption of an automatic car is almost the same or even lower than that of a manual one. Also, it is not expensive to maintain the vehicle.
