Question for some Gen3 owners here..

so exactly how many of the Gen3 owners on here have the 5 speed manual in their cars? probably just me but i see alot of cars w/ the auto or 'DCT', so i'm just curious about how many manual drivers are here..

and I believe only about 10% of the MK3's (give or take of course) were built with the 5spd

My google fu is weak, but surely there has been a poll to ask such a question. If not, why isn't yours a poll?

oh wow. i wouldn't have thought there'd have been a thread already in the performance sub-forum for the Gen3... i believe there was a poll but i think that was all Focus' from (99 across the pond) 00-current. i was only looking for the manual owners as opposed to seeing who owned which transmission, no? :)

I've driven manual all my life up to my 1st 2010 focus.Prior to that I had a manual Saturn,great car but BORING and decided to go auto.Now.........after driving my poor mans
little Indy car I have 5 speed remorse if that counts for on topic...If I could go back it would be a 5 spd for the fun factor alone.

I heard about the problems with the DCT and MFT before purchasing the car, so I special ordered it to get the 5-speed with the options I wanted.
