I'm near the STL Metro. I saved a search using cargurus.com when my VW TDI died. I was specifically looking for a manual diesel hatch. One popped up a couple hundred miles away and I was on the road to look at it within a couple hrs. I bought it on the spot as a hatch was tough enough much less a diesel 6spd. I'd be prepared to travel for one, the automatics are not too hard to find. Also 2018 is supposed to be the last year the manual tranny is offered.
