Trying to help the marketing folks at Ford.

Who has the 5-speed? Or, who wanted a 5-speed but got the SEL or TIT with automatic anyway?

"woulda got a stick shift it was a 6 speed" ?
You make a good point. Ford will have to keep up with the Jones.

2013 Focus 6-speed manual, has a nice ring to it.

The wife hates driving a stick so I had to have the 6 speed AT.

Shiftless... although I do use the select-shift some. But I probably don't count seeing as I never properly learrned to drive a manual beyond what I taught myself which wasn't enough to warrant buying a car with one and tearing it up...

still can't vote :/

Got the auto. Only have owned sticks to this point, I would have preferred a 6 speed stick, but had to make a compromise somewhere. I actually don't mind this auto so much, the DSG is kinda nice, and still vaguely feels like a manual transmission sometimes.

5 speed, would have probably gotten an SEL if it were available with a stick (in the US).

I hope/wish by October they would have a Manual option for SEL and Ti models. Because I love MT vehicles but, I really want MFT as well. Chance of this happening? I'll be optimistic and dream. I doubt they'd change it mid-production.

I'm on a business trip right now renting a SEL with the automatic. I have a manual SE 5-door on order (built next week), but this automatic is so good that I'm having second thoughts. I guess I won't be able to decide for sure until I try out the manual when it arrives.

I guess it is sacrificing more control for amenities ? Because that's the problem being faced lol.
My wife liked the dual zone AC a lot, luckily we both wanted a stickshift more.
