If you think that gearing is bad, you haven't seen a Toyota "sports" model (though they now say they are using 6 speeds on the Corolla, hooray! The regular Corolla had pretty questionably short gearing too). When Honda gives a car extremely short gears you at least can cruise with less than 50% of the rev limit.
