    Thread: Automatic Transmission

      Automatic Transmission

      I was wondering if the aveo is a 4 or 5 speed automatic as the website lists 4 gears but when I drive I count 5 different gears.

      4th speed is an overdrive. The "5th speed" you feel is the torque converter locking up.

      so the converter only locks up in 4th? im glad i got a manual
      Its more fun to drive a slow car fast, rather than drive a fast car slow!

      just because the converter locks up in 4th doesnt mean its the same as YOUR 4th gear. an aveo with an automatic transmission will go as fast as one with a manual. acceleration is slightly slower but thats a no brainer, besides, not everyone can drive a stick with perfection, so most of the time its about even.

      stick accelerates faster, but they both have about the same top speed

      of course the manual is going to accelerate faster (most of the time), the extra forward gear allows the transmission to be geared tighter.

      However; When in a slalom type situation where you're coming on and off the throttle constantly, often an automatic will be faster (if you can lock the gear). For some reason or another (maybe has something to do with the torque converter?), they kick harder in these situations (again, as long as you lock the gear).




      Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far the wall moves after you hit it.
