Sonic Short Throw Shifter

Transmission & Drivetrain - Sonic Short Throw Shifter

This shifter is a direct replacement for the stock shifter in your 2012-present Chevy Sonic. Our shifter reduces the throw 30% along with improving shifter feel over the stock unit. Comes with removable shift knob. We highly recommend doing our Sonic Shifter Bushings and the Shifter Cable Clamp at the same time for a massive improvement in shifting feel.

Threaded for 12x1.25 shift knobs

Haven't been able to try it. My shifter assembly is different from the DIY's on YouTube. Instructions, on ALL applications would be a vast improvement.

Superb quality!

I would of given a 5 star but the instructions were a bit vague. I would of prefered a video perhaps. Now that this is out of the way... This short throw shifter ROCKS! Shifts are faster, smoother and less vague than with the stock shifter. The quality is amazing and the fit is perfect.

Highly recommended

Between this, the solid bushing & new cable clamp, it feels like a new transmission. Cleaned up the slop in the shifter nicely and helps make shifts much faster. 100% worth the time and money to do this upgrade.

in general its a good product, good quality love the fun and thrill i get while driving. however for my 2012 sonic 1.8L 5 speed manual with reverse lock out it will go into reverse easily!!! you will need to put a spacer to keep the shifter from going into reverse when wanting to go into 1st. i was testing it out and heard a grinding noise and my reverse lights light up i was like oh damn i did it wrong but no, just need to head to home depot or any hardware store find a metal plate about 1/4in thick and 1/2 in height and glue it to the inisde wall of the assembly where the lock out clip can stop it from traveling all the way into reverse. If ZZP could have added that in the description or thought out the design it would be a 100% plug and play with my year car. 3 stars because i did have to make my own adjustments

Short throw shifter, (2018 Chevy Sonic RS)

The shifter itself is really nice I enjoy having it and allows for smooth and faster shifts which is always nice. The best thing about it is how stiff it is compared to the OEM. The only thing I wish is that they would have included the little white place grommet that you have to take off the oem and put into this one. It’s a pain in the ***
