I thought it was going to be a 6 speed?

The EL is basically just a Civic with Acura badging and some different styling, so yeah it'll be pretty much the same engine that's in the Civic here in the States.
well, if it were me id get a 6speed, but these are my parents they are old and want an auto. I was just wondering if the D17a2 had any balls, or was a worthless engine. They are selling their camry v6 LE and want similar power, i was just wondering if the d17a2 has any balls.
