    Finally: Why manual transmission is better than an automatic

    Not so long ago, it was widely accepted that a true performance car had a manual transmission. In fact, some performance cars were only available with a manual transmission. Well, in the great age that is the 21st century, things have changed. Now the beloved third pedal is being replaced with paddle shifters attached to the steering wheel and a network of passionless electronics connected to them that signal the transmission what to do when the driver commands it. But we’re proud to proclaim that the manual transmission is far from dead.

    In fact, here are 10 reasons that a manual transmission is still better than an automatic.

    1. Because Anyone Can Drive an Automatic
    2. You Have Full Control
    3. More Power to the Wheels
    4. So You Can Drive Anything
    5. Easier Engine Mods
    6. People Are Less Likely to Borrow Your Car, Including Thieves
    7. More Autocross/Track-Day Friendly
    8. No Delays
    9. A Direct Connection
    10. Less Maintenance
