I know it is designed for the gas mileage, but this is the first car that requires me to shift back to the 5th gear, just for an incline on the interstate. Otherwise, I can hear the engine being lugged unhappily. This doesn't make me feel my car is very powerful at all.

Should I consider to replace the 2.73 gears with 3.31 ones just for the sake of my 6th gear?
You could just stay in 5th.

I hate when car makers make top gear too short because they figure drivers are too lazy to downshift.
