So how many more years till we see a transmission? Are they using an existing tranny or is it another proprietary design? I wish they would just sell me the body as a kit and I'll figure my own power train.

If they'd sell me the kit I'd gut my Insight like a fish and throw the stuff in the Elio and get well over 100 mpg.

I was told by someone who saw the Elio in Arizona, that they would be using a Toyota transaxle.

I could bet they would use some outdated Aisin 4-speed for the automatic version.

He hasn't given up on the Elio yet, I will say the guy seems to be determined.

There is a difference between persevering and perseverating:
Quote:
continuati[ng] something (as repetition of a word) usually to an exceptional degree or beyond a desired point
Perseverating - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Changes daily, I guess. When did they rescind that? You think that it would be better to maintain their own repair departments?
