Transmission

automatic > manual
A stick shift that is placed in the Hummer H3 is less complex built and is cheaper in usage but it is less comfortable as there is no need to work with the clutch to shift gears very often, especialy in a bussy city traffic where we have lots of stop and go situations. An automatic transmission which is in the Mercedes GL-Class X164 with gears in the amount of 7 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better to use.
