When will these outdated ignorant opinions about automatics ever die?
After you blow out your knee standing on a clutch for 3-1/2 hours in stop-n-go traffic, you might change your tune. I used to drive stick because it was "cool" and harkened back to the "good ole days," but that incident on I90 in MA pretty much soured me on sticks...
The traffic was, "move 5 feet, sit for 5 seconds," for 3-1/2 hours straight. I literally pumped the clutch pedal 12 times per minute, 720 times per hour, for 3-1/2 hours.
There was no opportunity to take it out of gear and rest. Move 5 feet, sit for 5 seconds. If you didn't pull up as soon as the guy ahead of you moved, everyone within 50 yards would lay on their horns.
Clutch isn't like a brake where just the weight of your foot will hold it. You gotta stand on the thing, leg fully extended. I couldn't walk right for days, and my knee was sore for weeks afterward.
Automatics have come a long way since 1955. You might want to give one a try.
