6 speed plus overdrive?

Asked by Sep 16, 2013 at 07:58 PM about the 2004 Mazda MAZDASPEED MX-5 Miata

Question type: General

The specs say the trans is 6 speed plus overdrive.  Do they consider 6th gear overdrive?  Is there something I am missing?  If 6th gear is overdrive then wouldn't that be a 5 speed plus overdrive?

It has 6 speeds and overdrive. I would think 5th an 6th would be overdrive.

I looked at the tranmission specs for your car, and 5th gear is a 1:1 ratio and 6th gear is a 0.843 ratio. So 6th gear is your overdrive gear.
