I'm not certain, but I think they added this as a feature in 2008 but I'm not sure which versions of the car got it.
ok thanks for the info I wouldn't ever think of a situation when going beyond 7 grand rpm is needed but what I was thinking was either down gearing when coming to a red light or dropping a gear on the high way (lets say 5th to 4th) to be higher in the power band, when doing either of those how does the car react? is it smooth or very harsh and jerky?
