    Hi, I am Jumi of Capital Dream Cars and I am showing you how to drive a manual transmission car. Before I explain how to drive a stick shift car it is worth discussing briefly why it is useful to know how to drive stick. In our age of modern conveniences including automatic transmissions, driving a manual transmission car can seem like a hassle or even an obsolete skill. But if you ask a car enthusiast he or she will tell you that driving stick gives you more control of the vehicle, better fuel efficiency when done correctly and the thrill that comes from feeling integrally connected to the operational mechanisms of the car. In fact, some of my exotic car clients insist on driving only manual transmission. If you want to experience how fun driving manual can be, then follow along as I walk you through the basics of driving stick.
