xocolleenox That was a requirement in my Focus shopping.
Daily or not it's more fun to drive a little car with a manual in it.

I'd come across this at one point.

RonMaiden My wife saw the red color from the road but we weren't serious about buying a new car at the time but went up to check it out anyway and it was the only 5 speed on the lot and after listening to the salesman give his spiel about the DCT and how much quicker and better a tranny than the old school manual was we drove off the lot with the 5 speed and was the best choice we made buying that particular Focus and 4 and a half years and 30,800 miles later and still quite happy with the car.

HaloNHorns2002 I got rid of my 2014 SE Sport with the DCT with only 40,000 miles on it because I hated the transmission. I traded it for a 2016 SE with no options except a sunroof. The dealer had to get it from out of state, they didn’t have any sticks in stock at the time. I love the 5-speed, it’s so much more fun to drive!

preyna34 I purchased my S model 5 speed in 2012. I have over 100 thousand miles on mine and it hasnt gave my any issues unlike my brothers automatic.

Slo86GT 75k miles on my 5 speed 2013 SE now. Still loving it, though the shifter bushing feel a bit worn. Could probably use some aluminum or delrin bushing to tighten it back up.

Might end up with the Ford Motorsport short shift tower if I decide an RS is too far outside my budget in the next year.

FourD This is so weird, here in SA everything is manual. I don't know anyone with auto.

Most of my coworkers look at me like you drive a stick? I told them I learned to drive on my Dads 1986 Nissan Hard Body Manual with No Power steering about 15 years ago. They tell me it to much effort to learn now.
It's a really good anti theft device[emoji23]
