There’s a once popular trend that’s doing a vanishing act manual transmissions but that doesn’t mean fans of the old stick shift are going along with the trend, here is Wall Street Journal reporter Zusha Elinson, Zusha why the fall of the manual? Well there is a couple of different reasons, one of the reasons is that you is some of the critics of the automatic transmission will say its because Americans are lazy and they like to just in their car and


drink their coffee and text on their phone while driving not have to shift the shiftier, but there is actually a couple  other reasons  one is that autonomic transmissions have improved a lot since back in the day, back in the day autonomic transmissions were not fuel efficient compared to manuals, and they had worse performance now sort of more gears and they had better computers controlling them and so you get more fuel efficiency


with an automatic in many cases.
