8th gear at 45mph?
That's ridiculous!
The manual has 6 gears, and a 10% gearing difference, so probably around 40.
My 1.4liter turbo does 6th at 35 mph, but usually shifts at around 40.

I was kind of hoping that the engine would rev lower, since I'll be getting the manual.
That's a real turnoff for me. As well as the Camaro taking hi octane fuel.. no.. I'll stay with my Cruze.
Why is it that almost every car on the market shifts through the 6 gears at below 40?
And at 80 are revving close to their redline?

Thanks for the input, but it's a clear turnoff for me ��
