    Interesting...where was your transmission built?

    I have the window stickers for both my 13 and 14 ATS's. My 13 has both the engine and transmission built in the US. My 14 has the engine built in the US and the transmission built in France. I know many parts are built in different Countries but I was very surprised that something as large as the transmission would be built anywhere but right here in the US. I have noticed that my 14 shifts very rude at times and at a snails pace...probably because it was built in France

    I bought an ATV that was built in Mexico and it didn't run right. After many hours of working on it and looking for the cause we found a burrito stuffed in the exhaust.
