I have just become used to slapping it over to 5th as soon as I get in the vehicle. I still notice a lug on occasion but it is different from the Fishbite. This vehicle would be absolutely fantastic if it could figure out what gear to be in. Better yet, it the ratios were spaced differently. I also run at least 91 octane all the time. Running anything less (for me) just makes it run like crap.
