A Look at Some Common Myths About Manual Transmissions

With the popularity of automatic transmissions for new cars, manual transmissions are becoming less common on the road today. While some drivers prefer the convenience of an automatic transmission, other drivers still enjoy the thrill that comes from driving a standard car. Whether you drive an automatic or a standard transmission, Allied Transmission can provide you with quality transmission repairs in the San Jose area. From transmission rebuilds to manual transmission repairs, our technicians can get your car back on the road. To highlight the importance of transmission maintenance, here is an overview of some common myths about manual transmissions.

Myth: Manual Transmissions Are More Fuel Efficient
Some drivers believe that manual transmissions always achieve better fuel economy than automatic transmissions. In fact, it is true that early automatic transmissions were less fuel efficient than standard transmissions. However, today's automatic transmissions are just as fuel efficient as their manual counterparts. If you are seeking great gas mileage for your new car, you may want to check out the MPG ratings rather than the transmission itself.

Myth: Manual Transmissions Are Less Expensive
When you are shopping for a new car, you may want to compare prices between the manual and automatic versions of your vehicle. Sometimes, manual transmission models are offered at a lower price than automatic transmission models. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, both versions of a vehicle are offered at nearly identical prices.

Myth: Manual Transmissions Are Easier To Maintain
There is a popular belief among car owners that manual transmissions are easier to repair at the shop. In reality, a fully qualified transmission repair shop will be able to repair both manual and automatic transmissions with equal ease. Using sophisticated diagnostic equipment and the latest repair equipment, your transmission repair shop should be able to diagnose and repair a wide range of transmission issues.
