Could be. My trans is the 5 speed stick.marlboromike said:I saw in another thread that transmission was made in France...which is true?
That thread came from the one that describes the problem with water getting into the seals of the transmission on the automatics...
i thought i remembered it was something like 60 or 66%... thanks...GaryH said:This is from my comsumer information sticker. It's in all caps on the sticker so don't think I'm yelling at you.

yeah the Vue has a Honda engine, the Equinox has an engine made in China... Sickening isn't it...and most of it because we cannot compete with their wage and tax structures in those other countries and all the govenment regulations in this country on enviromental protection, worker safety, compensations, healthcare, not to mention the tarriffs they put on our goods coming into their country providing another unfair trade balance issue... I could go on and on...., but that is all another thread...TexSon said:How true, even the Harley Davidson has a high number of parts and components from other countries, to include Japan . :lol: You want to p!$$ off a Harley guy, just point that out to him! :lol:
they are assembled there, most of the parts still come form overseas....those do not account for 10% of good old american jobs in the auto industry....no matter what they try to tell you...GaryH said:Honda Accords are built in Ohio. Mercedes and Hyundai have plants in Alabama and Nissan pickups are built in Mississippi.
