Are automatics geared lower than manuals?
I recently purchased a 2003 Chevy Cavalier (5 speed manual transmission) and was surprised to find in the manual that the only towing that is allowed is by an automatic transmission equipped car. I never intended to do any towing but always had the idea that straight shift cars were more able to do such tasks. Are the automatics geared lower?
A few years ago when checking out a garden tractor, the only ones that would allow pulling a plow behind them were the manual transmissions.
