Our garage here has an old-fashioned door but as it is too small to park a car in and is full of stuff, it doesn't make much difference!
Our last two houses had large garages with automatic doors and we used to park in them on a daily basis. I don't think it made any difference to our relationship with the neighbours....
I have a great garage with plenty of space for my car but I'm too lazy to bother getting out, opening the garage, getting back in, driving in, getting out and shutting the garage door again...so yes - I'd like automatic doors.
I like this question. In the last house we rented, the garage had to be opened/closed manually and how I wished it was automatic because we did use the garage to keep the car.
In the house we rent now, the garage is automatic and oh so convenient.
