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

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.
