Hi Vijay,

In an Auto Transmission car the gears change automatically according to the cars speed and the engine RPM. The driver has to shift in the D mode to get going, there is no clutch pedal on Automatics. By pressing the accelerator pedal the car gains speed and the gears shift accordingly and when the brake is applied the gears down shift on their own. In Automatic cars you just have 2 pedals ie the Brake on the left and the Accelerator on its right.

Thank you.

- In automatic cars there is no clutch .. so you would only get an accelerator and break .. your one (left) leg will always be free as both functions (breaking/speeding) are not used simultaneously .. typically that is the major difference in 'driving feel' .. - Automatic cars have driving modes (parking, neutral, reveres, drive) instead of manual gear .. in most cases you will be using the drive mode .. some cars do have 2-3 modes in drive mode like d1, d2 but typically d2 will be used when higher torque is required (like on slopes or uphill driving or fast overtaking to accelerate) .. but in usual terrain driving 1 normal drive mode suffices .. you would put your car in drive mode and just use the accelerator to drive ..
