    Nice article! Really did change my POV on this topic.
    To be fair I’d always thought that having a manual or an automatic wasn’t that important, but your points made me understand how much you’re right afterall.

    Will definitely buy a manual when i get the chance!

    Most of your points aren’t true. The accident rates between manual and automatic rates are nearly identical. All modern manual cars allow for downshifting at will, most have some kind of manumatic mode. Gas mileage has been near identical for so long any car you’d be talking about for young drivers would either be 2 decades old or have similar gas mileage.

    It’s a ghost, a myth. There’s no benefit other than personal preference.
