After 6 months of owning our Xtrial I realised that when going down the motorway at 70 the auto box is still in 5th gear. It only goes into 6th automatically at 78mph.
Obviously you can manually put it into 6th but surely as an auto it should do it withing the legal speed limit. You can put it into 6th manually at 58mph.

After some good tests I found that you can drive the car and get a better mpg from it by changing gear manually. It is as if the auto box is in a sports mode.
I took this up with Nissan who basically could care less.
So if you have an auto box drive it manually you can be in a higher gear a lot ealrier than when the auto box does it.
