  • In this photo taken Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014, Marlo Dewing places her hand on the stick shift of the manual transmission of her 2012 Volkswagen GTI in Sacramento, Calif.  Dewing prefers to drive a car with a manual transmission, and when she went shopping to replace her 22-year-old Mazda Miata, she had very few models to chose from.  Only around 10 percent of vehicles made in North American now have manual transmissions, down from 35 percent in 1980. Dewing finally purchased the GTI that has a six-speed manual transmission.
