Simple Anti Theft System –Drive A Stick Shift


Huffington Post reported that three teens attempted to steal a car at gunpoint, only to discover none of them could drive a stick. Aside from the inherit security feature, stick shifts (or ‘manuals’ as they are known in the UK) have many other benefits:

  1. Cheaper to maintain – Replacing the transmission on an automatic tends to run in the neighborhood of $3,000. But on a manual it’s just $1,200.
  2. Cheaper fuel-According to Consumer Reports stick shifts can increase fuel efficiency by 5 mpg.
  3. Speed- You can speed up or down much easier in with a stick shift, braking is more responsive, and you have more control on gear changes when speeding up.


So, next time you’re buying a car, consider a stick shift to improve your driving experience!
