Is it just me - or do our 2.3 Aeros just not make it into 5th around town?

I'm used to driving 2 litre cars - and being able to use 5th at around 40mph.

I don't mind driving in 4th - but I feel like I should be in 5th - and if I do put her in 5th - I only end up droppin down into 4th.

Just wondered!

Cheers

There's just too much turbo lag that low in the rev range. It's sorta ok at 40, but if you have to accelerate or you slow down at all you have to grab 4th.

I use 5th every day in Milton Keynes - grid system + long straight dual carriageways + roundabouts = lots of petrol:cry:

I can honestly say i've never used 5th around town.... might have something to do with the 4 speed auto box though!! :cheesy:
