    Automatic or Standard? - Big Truck Transmission

    Yes, I wanted to hear it from all the men and women who drive the trucks themselves. Which do you prefer? Automatic or Standard Transmission? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

    i have driven both and i still prefer standard. automatics are nice in town,but going down hill it is very hard to downshift and backing up without a clutch flat sucks! give me a good old 13 speed and i am a happy trucker all around. you all be safe and keep on trucking!

    According to my experience automatic driving is more easy and safety as compare to standard.In case of traffic there is a big problem with standard.So I always go for automatic.
