    why can men get in any car and drive it..........

    yet women have to take their time "getting used" to a new car?

    is it me or is it a woman thing? lol

    I wouldnt say women are bad drivers,I know men sit there and moan and whine about women drivers but the car going around the roundabout the wrong way the other day was in fact being driven by a male! lol

    Men seem to be able to jump in any car and go and theres me who likes to suss it out a bit first

    A friend wanted me to drive her automatic,i just cringed at the thought,i think I would be looking for the clutch pedal all the time lol

    I must admit, I fought against driving it at first, but after about 5 mins I realised it is just really EASY!!!

    After a day I stopped looking for the gears and clutch!! :w00t:

    Trouble starts when you get back in the manual......

    i dont have this trouble and i change between an automatic and a manual. dont tar u all with the same brush lol

    it's because we understand that it's just a car and we just need to tell it what to do! we might not be used to it but carry on until we are, you could do the same if you tried!
    It's not some man only superpower just take your time getting used to it and remember that it is you that is controlling the car and not the car that is controlling you!

    LOL!! :-D

    I didn't say it was still (or ever!!) a problem... it was just wierd at first!!!

    its a confidence thing, ladies can be unsettled if they are not in their comfort surroundings. They know how to drive the car in the same way as men, but men just jump in and go I think. Im not saying its a good thing at all, but when I jump into anything, be it a Mini or a long wheel base high top massive van, I drive it like I have owned it for 10 years.

    Weird, it just shows that women are safer drivers than us. Confidence is the killer here!

    Not all women, I just took my friend, who's waiting to pass her test, to look at a used car, I checked it all over, she bought it and I jus drove it home for her. My dads a car dealer so I go pick up used cars with him all the time. The indicator, wipers thing can be confusin sometimes tho lol.
