For many years driving a manual vehicle was a given. This was because there was not other type of car. However automatic driving started to become popular on the streets of London in the 1980′s. More and more of us were driving those sleek automatic vehicles, there was only one problem- how to drive them. While the general idea is the same, the automatic car is laid out in a totally different way. The controls are different for a start. There is no gear stick as such, the level in it’s place is a central control system instead. The different options available are ‘Park’, ‘Reverse’, ‘Neutral’ and ‘Drive’ as opposed to gears 1 to 5 on a regular manual car.
Then there is the layout of the pedals, there is no clutch as the change in gears is done automatically by the cars engine. Pretty sophisticated stuff? Yes it is but keep in mind that automatic vehicles will naturally use up more fuel. They are not cheap to buy because of the high end technological advancements.
