Renting manual or automatic in Montenegro

Is it better to have a manual or automatic for the steep driving? Last year I rented manual in Wales but maybe the transmission was bad as I had a very hard time getting it in the proper gear. So I would rather get an automatic. what do you say?

If you are driving the incredibly tight switchbacks to Cetinje/ Lovcen mountain, automatic may be easier - but it depends on your comfort level with manual. I can drive both but I would probably prefer automatic for that drive (assuming you'll have a choice to begin with)
