Are you suggesting people who drive autos are dumber than manual drivers
That is the way it comes across
Surely by that logic, horse and cart drivers are smarter than all car drivers.
I have two autos and am not a little want to be street racer boy crunching gears to thrash the engine
I have a er6 for that
I didn't interpret it that way at all. But to answer your question, someone who knows how to drive a manual proficiently IS by definition a more knowledgeable driver, perhaps that means 'smarter'.
Really they are just cars and not every body needs to drive the way others do, autos are fine
