Hi everyone!!! I have fallen into a problem situation where it looks like I'm needing a new car. My poor 1996 ford explorer seems like its barely gimping along and I need a new car for school and what not so I dont have issue's then. Me and my dad where looking at some cars (cus there cheaper) my spending limit is 2000$ because Im poor :/. Now the 2 we are looking at are Manuals which I have never driven before but would like to learn. However I feel like I wont b able to multi-task as much which I know I shouldn't. However would it still b easy to look through my ipod songs or pick up a phone call?....what do you like better about each? Thanks!!

I don't know for sure but I have driven both types through the years. My son in law who knows a good deal about cars tells me that if you don't drive a manual correctly that you can have more problems with it than an automatic, however I tend to believe that at least with a manual it costs you far less in repair bills, at least in my experience.
