People say it's pretty easy to learn manual, a few days to a week or so. Me, I don't care about Performance or anything and I like to just drive and not be bothered with shifting. So I'm one of the very few who say AUTO. grin

Manual = more fun, faster car

Auto = less work needed.

I got an auto just b/c Im constantly changin cd's, have my phone ringin, an dont really want to go that fast.

There are some days I wish I had a manual tho. frown But I still love my auto. grin

Auto < Stick

I learned on auto and made the swicth. Now I cant stand auto. Shifting is so much fun, problaly funner in a GTS. Only Con: Its impoosible for me to talk on cel while in traffic only on open ways.

Agreed. I have an auto.. and drive with my hand on the center console. Ive never had an Manual, but I want one like you wouldnt believe.. (Once I get my car in my name, if I find an '03 or '04 GTS 6spd in Yellow I'll probably trade)

What are your plans for your car? If you just want to look cool and cruise then go with a automatic. If you want to head for the mountains and play with the curves then go with a manual. If you spend a lot of time in traffic and dislike the constant shifting of an manual then go ith an automatic. If you are buying an automatic I wouldn't get a GTS. Half the fun of the GTS is winding it out to 8000 and making the shift... My wife wanted me to get an automatic and I told her I would not buy the vehicle without a manual trans. It would be a waste of car to put an automatic in it. She would just have to learn to drive a stick. She ain't happy about it, but she doesn't want to learn a stick...(and I really don't won't to teach her in my brand new Celica...)

Gotta go witht the manual bud, way funner, and it's not hard to learn. The auto just puts me to sleep litirally (feel asleep going 50 with my whole family in the car) but the manual is a lot more fun to drive, and you get better cordination out of it aswell. Along with hella cool shif knobs tongue thumbsup crazy lollol thatsfunny

auto is boring, manual is fun
auto is slow, manual is fast

you can do more things in an auto
in a manual you cant

the choice is yours.. but i recommend manual by far

If you are getting a car like the Celica, get a manual.
Automatics are for the family mini van. grin

I learned how to drive stick on my Celica, it didn't take me too long. So trust me...if I can do it, anybody can.

I was in the car w/my friends integra. While he was driving stick. Damn near hit 3 cars. While in traffic. I had to keep yelling at him bout it. Luckly my new cell phone has speaker phone. So i can kinda talk. For me its hard to hold phone, turn wheel, and shift at the same time. I guess overtime I'll get use to it.

don't talk with your cell phone and you're fine or put the phone down when you go to shift or hands free.

I've had 39 vehicles in my life, and 2 have been autos: a truck and my Celica frown. I love my Celica but wish it was a stick. But the price was right on mine, auto was the only negative in my mind. Learn to drive a stick!!

i learned in my celica and im still a lad, its not hard but not the best car to learn in. also if you know what your doing you can maneuver the phone while driving use your right hand to shift and turn and phone in left if you need to turn just keep it in gear or upshift to prepare for it EASY AS THAT

I have an Auto, sometimes I regret having it, when I feel like "letting loose and having some fun" but most of the time I enjoy having it =) Most of the time I like to relax when I drive, and there's nothing like "cruising" with an auto =)


Celicas are sexy. Me in a Celica is DAMN sexy.

because its easier to learn to drive on streets (very first times driving ever) in an auto, and not have to deal with shifting when you first learn

Manual

And it's not that hard to drive manual and talk on the phone. I do it all the time without any problems.

I learned manual. I got my celica in feb/04 (AT)... I'm kind of regret... this is my first AT (and the last one wtf )... it's comfortable and relaxing... but definetely manual is 200% better!!!
happywink Hopefully I'll get a MT before this year ends.

I learned to drive with an Auto, then got my Celica in Manual. People complain about the Celica having a difficult to use manual transmission...they are pansies. It's really not that hard, and once you're used to it, it's second nature.

Six gears as opposed to four in the automatic.

I always like these topics, manual or auto. I especially like how people try to give reasons why they bought an auto. Not only an auto, but an auto Celica. Comfort, cruising, relaxing, Blah Blah Blah...Automatics should be banned. Car companies should stop producing them now! I'm going to start a BAN THE AUTOMATIC club. I believe the people who drive autos think people who drive stick are some crazy, bumbling, sweet in traffic, which gear am I in, oh no starting on a hill people. For me driving a manual is as easy as an automatic if not easier. The advantages of a manual are far greater than those of an automatic, which don't have any, especially in a little 4 banger.
