Manual transmissions were the first and most common type of transmission to be fitted in cars to benefit from different gear ratios between the respective propulsion of engine and drivetrain. They basically involve the activation by the driver of the clutch by a foot pedal, the positioning of gears by a gear stick, and the respective coordination of the fuel supply through a throttle pedal.
Manual transmissions cost less to manufacture and their reparation in case of malfunction is less complex and costly than that of automated ones. As compared with fully automated devices, it also allows for a potential greater fuel efficiency (albeit not necessarily) as the driver can judge what especial conditions of driving allow for taller ratios and lower supply of fuel. The risk of engine breakdown due to over-revving has additionally been significantly reduced through the fitting of electronic rev-limiters.
More significantly, however, the greater advantage of manuals lies in the substantially different driving experience. Automobiles with manual gearboxes situate the driver in command of all the important functions of the vehicle, such as gear selection, amount and duration of clutch activation, fuel supply, all of whose related combinations allow for an infinite range of subtle variations of the dynamics of the machine. Automobile enthusiasts, that is, individuals related to vehicles seeking the sensorial experience of driving for its own sake rather than as a means of transport or of merely attempting to move measurably faster, tend to value all the mechanical operations implied by active driving rather than seeking promised marginal gains in speed by the delegation of functions to the vehicle's automated systems. The experience of directly controlling and operating the main variables and functions of the vehicle and for the driver to be organically integrated with the whole of the machine is believed to be of greatest appeal to car enthusiasts.

The Can-Am Spyder roadster's incredibly responsive semi-automatic transmission makes shifting easier by allowing you to shift gears with a push of your thumb.
