    Spending tons of coin on a new tranny to save money on gas doesn't make any sense. Save that money and buy gas with it.

    besides, the new 6 speeds are geared low, so you'd be better off with the old 5 anyway.

    I have the six speed. I wish it was geared better for gas mileage. Spinning 2700 RPM at 75mph on the highway sucks for gas mileage. I still refuse to buy an automatic though.
