2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: Broken Shift Knob Cap

March 1, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

The shift knob for the six-speed manual transmission in our long-term 2013 Scion FR-S is one of my least favorite parts of the interior. I just don't like the feel of leather and plastic while shifting.

Luckily, the cap broke off in my hand today. It was easy to pop back in to place, but it still feels loose and flimsy. Maybe it'll be a good excuse to start shopping for weighted, metal replacements. What would you replace it with?
