Hi There, Mind explaining what is a midland tranny???zgokart said:May 02 build. Doors stay locked when ignition is turned off and you have to pull the door handle twice to open the door, or flip the central lock toggle switch (but for this you have to do this within several seconds, it won't work after one minute). Once you're used to this feature you might even prefer it to the newer feature described in an above post.
The 02 MC comes with the 5 speed Midland transmission. Much has been written about this. I have nearly 27k miles on mine and it drives like a charm.
