The transmission of a vehicle determines the gear that it is operating in. The engine needs to be in a particular gear depending on your speed or it will not work properly. If the transmission is manual, then you control the gear shifts yourself.

This is becoming less common over time, as more people prefer automatic transmissions that do the shifting for you. The more advanced and performance-oriented a vehicle is, the smoother and more efficient its transmission will be. A better transmission translates to better performance in terms of maintaining speed during gear shifts, better traction, and more gear options. Some people are used to manual transmissions. The default in the US is an automatic transmission, but in Europe, manual transmissions are common. It comes down to what you prefer and what you have experienced.
