Philkotse has compiled a list of 6 best cars with manual transmissions currently available in the Philippines.
Every year fewer and fewer vehicles are equipped with stick-shifts (manual transmission). Times have changed, and no longer are manual transmissions considered cheaper, safer and more powerful than automatics.
However, there are still vehicles where stick-shifts make sense, particularly when it comes to high performance sports cars.
