Is it likely your auto with an automatic transmission will be stolen

not a stick shift

I was fortunate to have grown up when there not many automatic transmissions, like riding a bicycle, one never forgets….

stick less likely to get stolen
stick can be coasted or bump started if the battery is low
stick doesn’t have transmission cooler lines and radiators springing leaks
stick can be shifted with left hand, elbow or partner in the passenger seat
