Recently, not only women, but also men began to give preference to cars with an automatic transmission. Moving around the city in such a car is much more convenient than on a "mechanic", and in order to drive comfortably, you need to learn how to operate an "automatic".
If you bought a car with an automatic transmission (automatic transmission), do not think that all the problems are over. Driving such a car is really simple, but first you need to get used to this car, acquire some driving skills.
A car with an automatic transmission has two pedals, and not three, like a car with a mechanic. One pedal is responsible for the "gas", the other - for the "brake". It is not recommended to press them at the same time, this can lead to breakdown, so immediately accustom yourself to press them with one foot. While driving, keep the other leg on a special stand that simulates a pedal. This will help you to get out of the habit of the clutch pedal on the "mechanic".
Set the gearshift knob on the automatic gearbox when driving in normal mode to “D” and do not try to move it to other control modes unnecessarily. For example, while standing at a traffic light, do not put the car on “N” or “P”, this will not help save gasoline and will not make life easier for your steel horse. Try to keep both hands on the steering wheel.
If out of habit to "mechanics" you are trying to grab the gearshift knob, make it so that by touching, you understand that something is wrong. To do this, change the material from which the trim on the handle is made. If your previous car's handle was leather, wrap the real handle in fur or place an inflatable rubber ball over it.
Before leaving for the city, try first to practice at the autodrome or drive along the highway for a couple of tens of kilometers. This will help you better learn how to drive your new car. Having finally learned how to drive a car with automatic transmission, you will truly appreciate all the advantages of your vehicle.
