      Hi Ciara,

      I have never driven an automatic car. I have a manual car now. It’s a Peugeot.
      I call it Percy the Peugeot. It’s a great little car I love him 🙂

      Hi Ciara,

      definitely manual! I find it gives me more control and it’s much harder to accidentally go too fast! And if you ever end up in the USA, definitely go with manual because nobody will steal it as they don’t know how to drive it…

      Hey Ciara,

      Manual gives you much more control of the car, and it’s probably best to learn on.

      But automatics are so much easier to drive once you know how a manual works!

      Alas, I cannot drive!

      When I learn, I think I will learn on a Manual. I was taught that you play acoustic before you play electric, to strengthen your fingers. So I will learn manual to strengthen my driving. It’s easier to go from more work to less.
