The Canadian International Auto Show wrapped up recently, and I left feeling deflated because fewer and fewer vehicles are available with a manual transmission.
Sadly, the stick shift is on life support with some automakers no longer offering any models with a stick, including Audi.
Last summer, Audi announced that none of their 2019’s destined for the U.S. and Canada would be available with a manual transmission.
Besides the fun factor of a stick shift, it also makes your car theft-proof.
Personally, I think the decline of the stick shift is directly related to the rapid rise of mobile devices.
Way to go yet again millennials!
