Seems like I hear a lot of people have autos and say they would prefer a manual. Just a poll I thought I'd post.

When my dad bought the truck for himself he thought my mom woudln't be able to drive the stick when she drove it. Dang female drivers, if it weren't for her I could have had a manual:lol3: All joking aside though I love my truck.

I know the stick is a better trans (or so they say), but for me auto is the way to go. I've got a construction business, so I'm constantly on the road as well as the phone. No way I could do the manual...
Besides, my right hand is for petting the mutt when I'm not yakkin on the phone...:lol3:

I have an auto and like it, but the next truck will most likely be a stick

i had to drive 150 miles to find a 6 speed manny in tx that also came with a long box and 4 doors. never even looked at auto's.

my lovely wife says its too stiff and jerky for her to drive, so im in the double bonus category as well .

This is the whole reason I dumped my last truck and bought a Cummins. I got tired of trying to teach my woman how to drive a stick. She almost tore my truck apart more than a few times, after two years of lessons and NO luck or improvement whatsoever, I gave up and sold it, I couldn't watch her destroy it anymore. So i'm stuck with my auto, but I might try a stick next time and just not put her in a position where she needs to drive it?!?

Nothing sucks worse than driving 400-600- miles a day shifting gears, coming home and having to shift some more! Plus its always cool to be able to burn the tires through the gears with out having to shift them!
