If you’re in the market for a used vehicle and are considering getting something with a manual transmission, you might have already realized that’s easier said than done. Manual transmissions aren’t nearly as prevalent these days as they once were, as continuously variable transmissions and automatics are currently king. There are still a few in production from various automakers, and even more that could pop up in a used vehicle inventory considering older models are more likely. So, we thought we’d help you find your next used manual vehicle as we have a few for sale right here in Manhattan, Kansas.
If you already know you want a manual transmission, chances are you're not asking this question anymore. But if you’re unsure what the benefits of a manual transmission are, this paragraph is for you. One of the biggest reasons to opt for a manual transmission is that they offer more control over your vehicle, but they’re also typically less expensive, longer lasting and require less maintenance. Plus, you probably won’t have to worry about people asking to borrow your car.
The six-speed manual transmission is the most likely one you’ll find today, though you can potentially find three-, four- and five-speed manuals as well. Unlike automatic transmissions, you’re not nearly as likely to see anything over six, though they do technically exist. As an alternative to true manual transmissions, you could opt for a CVT or automatic transmission with paddle shifters, as they give you the feel of a manual without giving up the freedom of these modern transmissions.
It would be difficult to list every possible vehicle you could find with a manual transmission, considering any vehicle could technically be found in our used vehicle inventory. Brands currently offering vehicles with a manual include Acura, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, Mini, Nissan, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen. At the time of this page’s creation, we have 10 manual vehicles in stock from Ford, Kia, Chevy, BMW and Audi.
