Consumers Reports Compiles List Of Cars Still Available With Manual Transmission
Share this Article

Car and Driver’s campaign to “Save the Manuals” campaign is spreading, with Consumers Reports doing their part for the movement by compiling a comprehensive list of all new cars available with a manual gearbox.

A few years ago, you could find some real oddities with a stick shift – a BMW X5 for example. Now, the list is largely what you’d expect; compact pickups, economy cars, the occasional luxury sedan with sporting pretensions, and of course, performance cars.

But there is one totally-out-of-left-field choice on the list that stands out from the others; the Mercury Milan (though not the hybrid pictured above), which can be had with a stick like its Ford Fusion counterpart. Better act fast if you want one.

    It’s a shame they didn’t go a step further and list all the individual models.

    Have you tried to buy a Station Wagon with manual transmission lately? I was last successful with a BMW 2001 535 model but am really frustrating myself nowadays.

    I don’t understand why it is so difficult to find a manual transmission. Every time I went to sell my car I had a long list of people interested and all were manual (’89 Volvo wagon; ’91 Acura Legend sedan; ’01 BMW wagon). I don’t think they (BMW, Volvo) advertise that they make wagons.

    This article must be old, many of these on the list are most definitely no longer produced with manual transmissions.
