Car Hire--automatic much more expensive?

We, in Europe, (and much of the rest of the world) mainly use manual shift vehicles. Consequently, you need to specifically request an automatic shift when booking a rental vehicle.

As there is limited demand for automatic shift this side of the pond, car rental companies only usually have available upmarket models. Hence the price premium.

Forget buying a car here! Its not possible, unless you are a resident.
