The word is very technical to describe, actually I have researched for the meaning of this word or phrase really. So automatic transmission refers to the mode where you can change gear automatically and I am talking about cars or vehicles. I think having a car with an automatic transmission is advantageous, aside from you won’t really need to think of the clutch, having automatic transmission makes it easier for the drivers to concentrate on the road than thinking of changing gears.
I do not know how to drive yet but I have tried driving a car. Ours has a manual transmission and by experience to drive one is very difficult there are a lots of time that the engine has turned off if you forgot to pound on the clutch. I have experienced driving also an automatic transmission car and I can say it’s a lot easier, you just put on the drive mode the car and there it is, pound on the gas pedal and your car will go. Automatic transmission they said will eat up a lot of your gas, I do not know if it’s true but if it is this is one of the disadvantages. However, if given a chance to own a car I would prefer an automatic transmission car. It would be much safer for me to have this kind of car, as I have said you can focus on the road rather than the pedals especially the clutch. However they said that learning on a manual transmission car is better than the automatic transmission car, if you could learn first the hard way, it’s just easy to learn the automatic transmission car.
You can really determine the advantage and disadvantage just by searching on the internet the difference between manual transmission and automatic transmission car. It depends on the driver or user, I believe most of the men preferred manual transmission cars than automatic transmission, aside from they could change gears at their preferred speed rate, manual transmission add some angst on men.
