I'd be curious to know what kind of "synthetic" transmission fluid they use and if that will be the solution for the TSB.

It's not just the lower CoG. Because it is physically lower, the front hood is lower which allows you to see better. It is also better balanced so it doesn't need a balance shaft or heavy...

It is smoother and easier on the drivetrain to slip the clutch a little at low rpms than to just lug it. You're supposed to slip the clutch when the rpms get really low and you start hearing noises...

No, but hopefully they do a 2.2-2.4L at 7000 some RPM, which would be the best balance for torque, power, etc. Just look at the Honda Civic Si motor: 2.4L, 205hp, 174lb-ft torque, and 7000rpm red...

So I wonder what they're going to do about the premium option with navigation. Will it be the same unit as before or a new/different model? The old one seemed fine to me. Still better than Subaru's.

A loose clutch spring can make a grinding noise. I have had that problem on my Eclipse. I don't think it hurts anything but it does sound pretty bad.
