Manual transmission cars in Kansas
Recent data shows that American car buyers are getting back into the shifting game. That is, they are buying more cars with manual transmissions than in recent years. This year’s first quarter sales show that manual transmissions were in 6.5% of vehicles sold. While that is still a small number, it is actually up to near double what it was in recent years. If you’re one to enjoy shifting on your own, Briggs Auto has a selection of manual transmission cars in Kansas. With a huge selection of new cars in Manhattan, Topeka and Lawrence, KS, Briggs Auto definitely has some manual transmission cars in the bunch.
The reasons for wanting a car with a manual transmission can be many. The first that comes to our minds – and probably the minds of consumers – is price. New cars with manual transmissions typically cost around $1,000 or more less than the same cars with automatics. And since the manuals typically come on lower priced cars, the money off makes sense if you don’t mind or even like shifting on your own.
The next reason for us is pure driver experience. It’s just plain more fun to drive a car with a stick, as racing through the gears gets any true car lover excited. Even though it is no longer a large fuel mileage advantage, the fun factor is tough to dispute. And with modern easy-to-use clutch pedals, manuals have never been so fun and easy to operate.
