Probably 5% or less - that seems to be the take rate for most MTs these days. Mine had been sitting on a lot 5-6 months before I bought it.I was wondering if they were going to do something different with the engine or manual transmission to try and improve fuel efficiency or power. Guess not. I wonder what percentage of Cruze's are manuals? I will have to do some research. It is unfortunate more people aren't motivated to get the manual when one sees the savings in purchase price and fuel mileage. Just my opinion.
