Question for all you 5 speed owners.
I recently took the wife's compass (07, 5 speed) on a road trip and noticed at 110 kmh it's revving 3 grand...
That seems high to me for basically what is an overdrive gear.
Just wondering if that is the norm.

i recall when i had my manual 08 2.4L 4x4 @ 65mph my RPMs were 2000 in 5th gear. Do you have the 2.0L or 2.4L?

Checked my 2.0 yesterday - 2900 RPM at 130. Tires have 24000 km on and in good cond.
tks Donfd.
I'm going to guess they geared 5 high to give you some power on the highway...but damn..3 grand at 60 mph is a bit much..
maybe I'll lift mine and put a set of 33's on it! :D

2.4L here and RPM's are just below or at 3 when going around 60 while gassing it. It's just the way the engine and transmission work in this particular vehicle.
