Yup. Drive it pretty hard for a few fuel ups and you'll be surprised. It will learn your style. Its why I drove it pretty spirited when we got it.NoobNox said:I highly doubt it's in 6th gear @40mph....probably 4th or 5th. Still even those gears are pretty tall...I suggest driving more vigorously for a few days so the tranny will "learn" your driving style. And no, I'm not crazy...that's what many modern transmissions do.
If you really cant stand it, put it in manual mode and just shift using it. It will be fine for normal shifting but dont overdo it and try to go all fast and furious.
