How to drive an automatic
With an automatic gearbox, the confusion comes when starting and stopping.
When you get into a car with an automatic transmission it should be left in "park." Put your right foot on the left-hand pedal (the brake) push down and start up using the key or button inside of your vehicle. Once started move to first by pushing gently on paddle shifter for gears 1 through 7 until reaching '1' then release pressure from pedals. You can also use this method while stopped at red lights but don't forget to put your feet back onto both brakes once released!
