Quote: "May be I should buy manual transmission I'm not sure" .........
manual cars are less expensive, have more usable power, and have better fuel consumption. the manual geasrbox is cheaper to repair and service.
but if someone does not like changing gears auto is easier,
personally give me a manual every time, oh and u can push sdtart a manual but not an auto and you can only drive an auto a certain distance in neutral before it winds up and destroys itself (geasr box) a manual can roll as long as you want (think about towing a damaged vehicle in nuetral home or to service center)
your father might not want to use the clutch though ?
