How many reservations thus far? Or are we simply dealing with the "law of small numbers" as the 6MT is only available on one trim, that also happens to be the priciest?View attachment 508
Andrew Quillin from Acura PR shared a tweet saying that over 70% of Integra reservations are for manual transmission cars!
Thirty orders is all that are in the sample size?!? You're absolutely correct, the take rate of 6MT's will surely drop as more orders roll in.That's also true with the 2023 Acura Integra Reservation Tracking List, but it's a small sample size of just 30 Integra pre-orders. As the average Acura car buyer finds out about the new Integra, I think we'll see the take rate of manuals drop.
When that time comes, we'll have an accurate look at what the 6MT/CVT divide is like.

We've doubled the original sample size, and we're still over 70% manual. If we like the manual I've ordered enough, and when the dealer does get a CVT demo in stock, I'm going to have my wife test drive it too. Although if our local dealership can get the sound system fixed on her TLX (appointment tomorrow), maybe we won't hate it so much. (the system freezes any time Apple Carplay or Bluetooth is used).Thirty orders is all that are in the sample size?!?
