    If you're using M mode on the automatic, shift down to first at 5 mph or once already stopped - just like you would with a manual transmission.
    thanks for the info

    The total lack of highway passing power is beginning to get on my nerves. It's really great power-wise for a small engine at under 55 mph, but after that just...nothing. 3rd just makes the engine scream and provides no benefit, and even downshifting to 4th from 6th doesn't provide much more acceleration than just flooring it in 6th gear.

    Granted, 6th gear really isn't bad when you just want to gain 5 mph or so, but when I floor a car, I want something to happen! Electronic throttle bodies mean that a car these days doesn't really have much left to give once you pass half-throttle or so.

    *Sigh* maybe it is time for a tune...but I'd like more from it stock. My 98-hp Accord had more "kick" on the highway.

    this is weird cause my 1.8 is the freeway flyer,i downshift to 5th at 65mph and she moves granted after 3-4 seconds but when it hits 3400 rpm she scoots pretty well for having 140hp

    A tune will help on the highway. I still need to downshift from 60 but 80 to 90 mph comes up pretty quickly. It is an ECO 6M.

    1st gear(manual trans) is way way too touchy! Also the buttons for the heated seats don't work well when pushed in. They have to be pushed straight on and just right to register. Lack of cubby holes for phone etc.

    You can turn off the automatic lights by turning the headlight switch to the left once. A second time to the left and it turns the automatic lights back on. I find this really useful when I want to run just my fogs in a snowstorm or fog. This keeps the light projection low so I don't get reflection from the falling snow or fog.

    The paint... not sure if it's the paint or the paint job. Either way, the only thing I am disappointed in so far.

    The Fade *IN* Dome Light!? Why the heck would you want to open your door and wait for the light to slowly come on? I can see fade off but seriously somebody wasn't thinking.
