when will the trucking industry dispose of the manual transmission?
I hear the industry complain about the need for more drivers but won’t help themselves by putting more automatics on the road. It would seem to me if the army can go all automatic why not the trucking industry? I would think then there would be a lot more potential drivers for there trucks as most cars are automatics .
You seem to think a automatic can’t be down shifted whats up with that none sense? PS J-brakes are attached and work thruogh the engine compression not the tranny.
It should be noted that automatics are becoming just as fuel efficient as manuals this is especially true if you consider that the manual give radically different milage depending on the skill of the driver where as the automatic gives pretty much the same milage no matter who’s driving. As for reliability if it’s good enough for the army it’s good enough for me!
