Automatic Transmission vehicles do not require shifting gears but will automatically engage gears whenever the car feel need to.

However, at some points or situations you may need to shift the gear leaver if a great or very strong gear is required like the low gear or preferable constant two. These are more of constant strong gears where 4W is required like the slippery areas or very steep slopes however most of the time the leaver is kept in the drive position.

The manual transmission is more of tough vehicle associated with a high ground clearance and tough 4X4 managed and controlled by the driver. The manual requires and involves being active when driving and is more than just sitting and navigating the terrains across Uganda and east Africa. Normally the vehicles have 4 front gears and reverse gear with of course neutral. Most cases try as much as possible to avoid driving in Neutral gear as the vehicle is self controlled. Coasting as it is termed is a very dangerous practice commonly tried by travelers who Rent a car in Uganda and try all possible means to save gas.
