Booked crysta z auto without my knowledge. The car will be chauffeur driven. In south tamil nadu automatics are a rarity except for the exotics.
I think manual is good as 2-3 paid drivers will be driving this car. All are the usual indica/tavera driving guys. The reason for choosing z auto was the orange interiors and lesser noise compared to z manual. I was waiting for hexa and thought these guys were not going to buy crysta . Today they say they booked a z auto. These people with zero knowledge of cars are telling how automatic is best compared to manual.
MY question and problem is
1. Is automatic easy to adopt, for a cabbie?
2. even if our regular driver adopts auto, sometimes he sends a alternate guy due to sickness etc. Wont it be difficult for the new guy with no experience to adopt , even if he adopts how he manages the car in a emergency is questionable, wont it?
3. Ownership cost, reliability of z auto.
Should i go with auto or change the booking to manual?
P.S. I really hate the vehicle for the price it is sold.
