Mine was the only one in the lot, and I am glad to have it. People say they did not know Focuses came in Manual....shows how uncommon it is lol.

That's more manual trans than I thought, but I would put money on the fact that most of the cars made with em are on here or FJ.

What I was told at the dealer was, "The people who want a Manual trans seek them out, it's very rare that we sell a manual to regular people".

I really wanted an SES but the only way I could get a Manual was with an SE, which is OK I guess cause the color has grown on me and it doesn't come in the SES Tier.

Mine was the only one available in the city and the only other one available in the state of Texas was out in San Antonio, it was a black SE. Heck it never hit the sales lot, I went in and was told it was on a train arriving the next day. I said hide it, and I will see you tomorrow. Next day I owned it with 7 miles on her.

i always thought it was because of location also. around here, it's nothing but traffic, so i see nothing but automatic's for sale. now i go down south and they have as many manuals around as auto's while there is usually less traffic.

I have a 5 speed and it's amazing.

I custom ordered mine and picked it :)

I originally tried to order a 2010 5 speed SES but they ran out of manual transmissions lol
