Drivers in Inglewood and Santa Monica searching for a new vehicle have many options when it comes to transmissions. Your options might include automatic, continuously variable, and manual transmissions, and each one has some particular advantages. Today, let’s take a look at the benefits of equipping your vehicle with a manual transmission. When you’re ready to drive a new Honda car, stop by Airport Marina Honda of Los Angeles.

Advantages of a Manual Transmission

A manual transmission offers some key benefits in several areas:

  • An automatic transmission has more moving parts, and that makes a manual transmission easier to repair in most situations.
  • Manual transmissions use either gear oil or engine oil for lubrication, and they break down at a slower rate than transmission fluid. This can help prevent maintenance headaches down the road.
  • Many drivers cite improved control as the main advantage. The ability to move between gears manually means you can control the vehicle’s speed, and you can also use the transmission to slow down the vehicle. When you’re driving down Interstate 405, that improved control can come in handy.
  • One of the primary benefits is cost. A vehicle with a manual transmission almost always costs less than one with an automatic or continuously variable transmission.

If you’d like to experience these benefits firsthand, come to Airport Marina Honda today.
