Honda Kills Fit, Civic Coupe, And Accord With Manual Gearbox

Honda recently announced that the Fit, Civic Coupe and Accord models with manual gearboxes are being discontinued.

This news has left many Honda fans heartbroken, as these cars were popular choices among drivers who enjoy the tactile sensation of shifting gears manually.

The reasons for Honda's decision to cease production of manual transmission vehicles are unclear,

but they cite a “shift in customer preferences” as part of the equation.

It is likely that increasing popularity of automatic transmissions has caused demand for manual gearbox cars to fall in recent years.

Although it's a shame to see Honda dropping these classic cars, drivers still have the option to find them on used car lots.
