You know what they say once you change to an automatic car, you never go back.
There are many benefits to a automatic transmission:
-Easier to use:Although there is nothing inherently hard about operating a clutch and shifting gears an automatic gearbox is generally easier to use.
-Safety:Having an automatic allows you to keep both hands on the steering wheel at all times.
-Better for hilly areas:Automatic gearboxes take the pain away from hill starts. Effectively allowing the car to operate efficiently no matter how steep the hill is.
-Easier to use traffic:Live in a built up area where driving is a constant stop and start. Make your life easier with an automatic; move through traffic just with the push of one pedal.
Different types of Automatic Transmissions
An automatic gearbox, also known as an auto is a type of vehicle transmission that can automatically change gear as the vehicle moves. This means the driver does not have to shift gears manually.
A semi-automatic transmission is a type of vehicle transmission that combines a manual and automatic transmission. This allows the driver to take control of gear selection. This is usually done through paddles on the steering wheel or alternatively on the gear stick.
