Yes, or they wouldn't give you the controls to do so.

(of course, you need to maintain your car suitably, neglect will kill it)

I've always driven every car I've owned like that and never had a problem.

I havent driven my new box in manual mode at all even though it is run in. My last box ..when I tried to change gears flared up in the revs like it was slipping and then changed gears.Is this a problem for you guys? I will try some manual driving today but I am not holding my breath. I hope it does change cleanly into next gear then it may even go faster

Turn your S5 solenoid in 1/2 to 1 turn and most if not all of the flaring will dissappear.
