I was at the dealership today to maybe test drive a manual 6s, but of course, there weren't any on the lot. I spoke with a sales rep and we got to talking about how popular the 6s is with the manual gearbox and how Mazda messed up and sent boatloads of automatics (not that the automatic is bad) to dealerships. He fed me the expected spiel of how it'll be hard to get one, and blah blah blah. What caught my attention was that he said that the 6s manual tranny is 'restricted' and it'll be hard for Mazda to mass produce more 6s' in that configuration (V6 and manual tranny). I asked him if he knew of any details behind this and he replied back with "it has something to do with the EPA..." I felt this guy was full of it so I left. I was wondering if anyone has heard the same thing or if there is any truth behind this b.s.?
