I agree that the lost jobs will surely hurt the area, the current 4speeds are great, but "consumers" demand more cogs.. or hybrids, or something.....

The 4 speeds would have been fine 10-15 years ago, but automakers have clearly moved on to 6-speeds and beyond...

well at least GM didn't have 3 speeds as long as dodge had them in the neon.

but yes... 5 speeds in midsize and up should have been here even 5 years ago. but jumping to pure 6 speeds (other than theta) looks much better than letting 5 speeds stick around too long

W and G platforms phase out around that time...

But Epsilon II will be out. They could probably use the capacity.
