Should I get a car with disc breaks or drums?
My car has an automatic transmission.
Drum brakes have been around for a long time and were used before caliper disc brakes came out. There are still may drum brake designs used today and will perform great if the vehicle is designed to have them. I would recommend to not base your decision on the brake type when choosing a vehicle. Chose a vehicle on its merits of low maintenance costs with good reliability.
