Why Automatic Transmissions Are More Popular

Did you ever wonder why automatic transmissions have become the standard and popular option over manual transmissions? Manual transmissions were once all we had; and when automatic transmissions were created, they were not reliable and could cost more money to produce. Today almost all new cars are made with automatic transmissions, simply because that is what people want. Here are some other reasons that automatic transmissions are more popular, especially in the United States.

Driving in Traffic

If you live or work in a metropolitan area or a large city, you probably deal with rush hour traffic in the mornings and evenings as you are going to and from work. Driving in traffic can be highly annoying and slightly dangerous, even with an automatic transmission. With a manual transmission, you would have to be constantly shifting gears, which can take your mind off of the road and cause a fender bender.

Short Trips

Most Americans drive their cars for short trips, such as to the corner store for a gallon of milk or a loaf of bread. In Europe, such short trips are done by walking or biking to conserve gas and provide less pollution. But as long as Americans are driving for every errand, automatic transmissions allow for much easier driving because you’re not constantly shifting gears.

Affordable and Easy to Maintain

At one time, automatic transmission cars needed more repairs or sooner replacement. Automatic transmission cars were also much more expensive because they were considered a luxury. Between the initial price and the cost of repair or replacement down the line, automatic transmissions were simply not practical. Today automatic cars don’t cost much more than manual transmission cars, and maintenance of automatic transmissions is much more advanced and less necessary.

If you have a vehicle with an automatic transmission that you need to have serviced, repaired, or inspected, contact us today to schedule an appointment.
