Automatics are more efficient than manual transmissions so mpg numbers go up.
I've never been off-roading in a manual, but it seems like it would be really hard on the clutch? It's serves my purpose well. Look at how many 8-speed and even 9-speed automatics are available now. Probably the only real objective plus for manual at this point is still possibly being able to start your car with a dead starter or battery. Are the 4th and 5th gens capable off road?

For the enhanced peace of mind of an available Extended Vehicle Service Agreement, please visit. Oh, and it also made the car a lot quicker too.
We've had locking torque converters for many years now. I also find it incredibly ironic that you, being such an obviously proud engineer yeah--you're screen name, lol turned completely to the human factor as an argument instead of discussing torque converters versus direct drive. All information contained herein applies to vehicles registered in the 48 U. App Store is a service mark of Apple Inc. Oh yeah, you don't have one. My dad believed in simplicity.
