Anyone want to bet the car will get killed off before it gets a 9-speed?
I remember reading the reviews and thinking I had to wait for the 9-speed. Some reviewers acted like it would never drop a gear, and that is just not the case. I'm glad I went for a test drive to feel it for myself.

I don't see GM putting the 9-speed in it now. I don't think they'd see any return on investment for that change. It's probably cheaper to continue with the third party vendor instead of fitting the new transaxle.

I'm glad I decided to test drive it as well; this car fares a bit better than reviewers let on, but I wasn't really expecting sports car performance. Just a big but peppy wagon.
