As opposed to many (most?) here, I purposely got the 2.65 over the 3.06 and both were available on the lot. I knew I'd be doing a lot of distance everyday and wanted the V6/2.65 combo. I felt for my driving needs, I wanted it as 'leggy' as possible and I'm glad I did. The car really gets on it after 60 mph, for a V6 and I like the 1500+ r's at open road cruise.....smooth and quiet.....and I'm averaging 28+ mpg, each tankful. (unless Mrs 2LZ does some time behind the wheel!)
Even with the tall rear-end on the tight, steep mountain roads I navigate, the auto-stick does the trick on that. Let's you really pick and choose your RPM's without having to bury your foot.
I could see if I was going to be doing mostly city or 'burb driving, the 3.06 would add a bit of off-the-line spunk.
