The EcoTech 2.4 is a great engine, but I'm a little concerned about the Aisin 5 speed.
I owned an '08 Solstice for a little over a year, and if there's anything I disliked about the car, it was the transmission. Looking forward to some real world road tests ( as well as testing it myself) to allay my fears.

Very pronounced lag between 2nd and 3rd. It just never felt like a sporting transmission. I now have an '09 Miata, and the tranny seems so much better matched to the engine. The Aisin was also very noisy (gear whine).

Imagine if your Solstice was 1000 pounds lighter or almost half the weight... I would hope it would be a bit more sporting then. :D
