The manual Fiat can give anyone a hard time when you find too much traffic in their way home because they have to change shifts every two seconds. Also, the car can turn off by itself while anyone is changing shift. Another feature is that the manual Fiat is easy to maneuver in a dangerous situation. Being able to control the acceleration of the car, anyone can control the brake of the car with the shift stick.
