Are there only manual drive cars in Poland?? Is automatic illegal? I heard that in Poland they are only allowed to drive stick. Is it true?

No and Not illegal. I've seen a few automatics, but I think you have to import.

not illegal but silly imo.

drive manual, fuel is too expensive here and other drivers too aggressive to trust an automatic.

I don't like them either. I've never owned an automatic, but i've driven a few and they're no fun. I like to DRIVE my car :)

I go for automatic :)) & a car that tells me when I'm about to hit the car behind me, a car that tells me when I'm parking too close to another car....... a car that heats my leather seats, a car with DVD... etc... a car with a brain of it's own... basically a robot-woman with an engine in four wheels :D

Perhaps a bicycle would suit you better :)

Perhaps, I should buy myself a blonde wig and blue/greenish contacts. That'd be super awesome, hot blonde jj on wheels... heheheh no but really, it's a very nice car, I'm looking forward to buy it in a future not so far away :)

I have heard that automatic shift in Poland is not recommended because you cant get any service on it anywhere.

Automatics are expensive; and expensive to fix if they break down. However, I've seen automatics in Poland, although very few, compared to manuals.

I drive a manual but bought my partner an automatic as she does not seem to get on with changing gear. I have to admit, I prefer driving the automatic, especially in towns or when stuck at roadworks on the A4, which has been every time for the past 5 years!!!!
