Automatics came with 2.73's, too low. 3.23's were an option. Manual trans came with 3.42's...Someone responded to your other post and I agree....http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t2406_ds562030

Can't make up your mind which ratio to go with? Depends on what type of driving you do. Highway, city, both, daily driver, weekend warrior?


I have found the 3.73 gear ratio is a good all-around gear for both coming out of the hole and freeway especially with a six speed transmission.
