Q: Automatic?

asked by on

or Manual?

My car has 555 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If you are wondering if your transmission is an automatic or manual, the easiest way to determine this is if you have a third pedal near your feet. This would be the clutch pedal and is used to shift a manual transmission. Only two pedals indicates an automatic transmission. Hope this info helps.
