    The six-speed manual, which is geared to provide five acceleration gears and one overdriven gear, is part of the problem. To get the engine operating in the most fuel efficient gear requires more shifts than a five-speed manual or a six-speed with two overdrives. So you learn to take short cuts using a 1/3/5 or 2/4/6 pattern or some other more direct route to letting your left foot rest and taming the noise.
    I think it's acceptable as long as Acura decided to sell a real performance model that has a better transmission without the overdrive gear.
