After 2008, I did not see a new coupe with MT at any dealership visited in four different states, but there was always one or more DCT units available. Not even the most competent client advisor can sell what isn't on the showroom floor or lot. That is why the built to order ratio of MT-DCT was very different from the total US/CA sales ratio.
