Less Than 4% of the Cars We Buy Are Stick Shifts

posted by Todd Robbins - 

Driving stick is an art form, but, like virtually all other art forms, it's one that none of us has any interest in learning.

According to a new study by CarMax, less than 4% of the cars we buy today have manual transmissions. That's down from 27% back in 1995.

In fact, there are only two cities in the entire country where at least 6% of the cars have stick shifts: El Paso, Texas and Dothan, Alabama. Everywhere else, we're going automatic.
