I'm liking this quote:

Where the manual transmission does have a problem is the shift from second to third gear. The engine revolutions drop off too much.

That means the driver who is really interested in forward momentum has to take a deep breath and wait for the engine speed to get back around 3,000 rpm for anything approaching serious acceleration to proceed.

Having heard lots of complaints about this, (Bruce Kosbab, Saturn's chief engineer), says this summer GM will change the gear ratio for third.
