    • Manual trans is the best theft deterrent? Carjacking goes wrong when thief can't drive stick

      Maybe the decline of the manual transmission is providing some unintended benefits. Kids growing up these days are not rowing their own gears. It is even affecting car thieves as a carjacking in Hillsborough, North Carolina was foiled due to the carjacker not knowing how to drive a stick shift.


      Seriously:


      The suspect tried to steal a car, couldn't drive stick, and was apprehended after getting out and running to hide.

      The manual transmission proves its worth in today's automotive landscape yet again.
