Dati manual ang dinadrive ko pero ngayon automatic na at sobrang comfortable ako. Hindi na ko nahihirapan at no worries na rin ako kasi di na ko namamatayan ng makina.

Gusto ko talaga maging expert sa manual. Sa AT kasi wala naman problema except magmaneuver. Kaso lang nalilito talaga ako sa pedals and gears. Ang daming kelangan isipin ng sabay sabay. Natrauma then ako when one time, I drove a manual car along Katipunan. Then when I was about to take a U-Turn, nalito na ko. Naka 3rd gear pa naman ako. Nag U-Turn ako without changing the gear and no half-brake. pagkaliko, sumakop ng 2 lanes yun car. Buti na lang holiday nun, konti lang ang sasakyan sa daan.  :(

Just finished 5 hours driving. Nung nag 2 hrs ako, naramdaman ko sakit ng left binti ko the next day. Napapaisip tuloy ako if kaya ko ba talaga ang M/T, but I have to kasi wala akong pambili pa ng A/T e.
Sobra focus ko sa clutch kaya ngawit, even when I can remove my leg naman, like if naka-gear2 na or naka-neutral na sa traffic/stop lights, I forget pa.

^ Sanayan rin yan. Pagtagal wala na rin yung masakit.

Pero true, masakit sa binti lalo na kung puro traffic driving ang gagawin kasi parating ginagamit ang clutch doon.

I understand nowadays since the volume of cars have increased through the years, hence traffic conditions are worse, therefore an automatic tranny will be best suited.

I have been driving for 27 years but nothing beats the manual transmission. Maintenance wise and durability wise, in steep climbs, downhill, and wading through flood waters I can surely depend on it

Because of Manila's traffic situation, its more practical mag matic.

Also, newer cars have paddle-shifts so pwede kang mag "manual" sa matic.

Feeling ko super hirap ng M/T pero kailangan ko matuto rin, just in case. Pero if I buy my car na, I'll choose A/T
