How do they do it? Cutting corners. It's a fact of life.
With that much power and a garbage tranny, what a deal they gave us
And 27K isnt that cheap
There are so many other things that could have been made cheap, besides the transmission. Like cheaper materials for interior, 15in wheels, no radio. I would have rather had all that cheap stuff and had a gear box that was worth a damn. Instead they outsourced the transmission to Fisher Price
