Even though they are a lot rarer in the UK than in other countries, there are still a number of vehicles that use automatic gears rather than the more popular manual version.
However, it is perhaps fair to say that not everybody actually understands what is meant by the term and are just aware that it means you do not have to do the gear changing, but is that all that it means?
Basically, it means that the car has an automatic transmission and is able to change the gear ratios in accordance with the way that the car is being driven.
It then allows the driver to focus on the driving part whilst the transmission makes sure that the engine is not being put under any undue stress by being in the wrong gear.
