I must seriously be missing something. I have the manual transmission. When I rev high in first gear I get a message in the LED display that says something like (1-4 for better fuel economy) or something. It's just a message and only shows when I get the speed high enough in 1st. I'm not obligated to shift to 4th. What's the big deal? I just ignore it.
