Question type: Shopping & Pricing

If buying a Jeep, would it be better to buy an automatic or manual?

2 Answers


depends on what type of driving and what conditions. im surrounded in traffic so i would pick automatic. besides that go with that you like


thats right if your using it for off road or you live in an open area then manual but its down to prefrance, i hate auto boxes full stop i like to be in control of the gears etc but again if you live in a heavily populated place an auto could be best if you dont mind but for the decition if a autobox ecu fail your talking 200-300 upwards and if the auto box fails its self your talking 700+ then there the labour were as a manual would cost 200/300 to replace so its your call
