|sailor||They keep thinking the manuals are only purchased by skinflints saving the last nickel, mine didn't even include a tach though it was an upgraded model that even had a sunroof. Tach was std. on the automatic where not needed.....|

They're getting harder to buy.
We knew we wanted a '16 hatch and were happy to order it, but we had 3 requirements: 1) Manual 2) Cloth seats 3) Moonroof
If I recall the moonroof wasn't an issue - but the stick and cloth seats prevented us from getting most of the upgrades we would otherwise have bought. At least we were able to get an SE in Blue Candy - some of the color-vs-feature selections surprised me.
'course then we had to turn around and put a Borla catback, an ST spoiler, and some 235/45-17's on it. Not sure I'm done yet.
Coming from an '11 Fiesta SES I really miss some of the "nicer" bits - especially the keyless entry. But, well, I guess they figure if you're not buying the upscale trim lines then you won't want the frills. Kinda disappointing.

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.

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!|

Who's using a short throw shifter? Thoughts and opinions?
