I struggle to contend with why anyone would by a car with a manual gearbox when surely an automatic is easier.
Sure an automatic is easier, but you have more control and options when you use a manual gearbox. You can shift into a lower gear to get more power/acceleration. In an automatic you have to stomp on the gas to get it to shift into a lower gear and then hope it doesn't shift right back when you take your foot off the floor.

Plus drive a manual is more fun and possible more fuel effiecent.
