I find it pretty amusing that my 09 V6 transmission is geared so wide that you can hit 80 in 2nd gear. Why on earth is this 4 door sedan geared for a theoretical top speed near 175 mph??? Acceleration would be so much better if it had either a 6 speed tranny or was geared narrow, say for a more practical 140 mph top speed. Or make the first 4 gears shorter and keep a wide 5th gear to keep highway rpms lower. I just dont get it. So much power is completely unusable due to the tranny gearing.
