Hi. I'm Bill in Houston, Texas. I'm thinking of buying a Versa hatchback soon and glad to find this site. Problem is I want a 6 speed manual and it's been hard to find one on the car lot. Of course there's no hurry-still have 6 payments left on my Mercury Grand Marquis and want to keep it too. I checked with 2 dealers about special ordering a car. They talked like it can be done but seem like they're not very interested in going that route. Did any of you special order yours?----Seems like nowadays if you want a manual transmission you're an outcast:frown5:

all most everyone wants an A/T it just easy, but I like manual its fun, more fuel efficient, plus I like the control to drop gears when needed. I habe heard good things about the cvt working well, but then your paying more.

welcome to the forum and I agree if they want the sale they will find your car just tell them what you want and be like if y'all cant find it for me I will go to someone that will, make it know that you will walk out and go somewhere else, then they may be able to find you one if they think they will loose the sale.

Welcome. I wanted a manual and trim didnt matter so I got a base model...those are more likely to find in manual. I would try different dealerships, some are more willing to work with you than others. :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the replies. I want to buy a new one-probably trim S. I think the SL only comes in auto transmission??? I found a company that sells an aftermarket cruise control for the Versa-would need to find a shop to install it if I end up with one without c control.

Sounds good. You can always get an S and convert it to SL(sports package). :D
