https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/172262941856985/ - Ad says "transmission slips". Was the S available with an automatic in '06? Doesn't look to bad otherwise (only 1 picture in the ad) if you've got parts lying around...

Yes, it used the Aisin 6 speed, usually with the flappy paddles.....replacement rebuilt gearboxes are available for under $3K

However, the way the ad reads it sounds like it has a manual gearbox and needs a clutch....could be someone that doesn't know how a transmission works or who knows what? With only one pic if interested I'd make a call and ask for a pic of the interior.

About the only FWD car I'd dread doing a clutch in.  My guess is they didn't correct the trans box. Ads always default to auto.

If it's a supercharged engine then it doesn't have the battery box in the way, which makes a trans swap a ton easier.
