3500-4000rpm on the freeway

Asked by Aug 26, 2016 at 08:10 AM about the 2008 Honda Civic LX

Question type: General

Just got an 08 Civic 1.8L 4 cylinder
automatic transmission with 105,000.
Everything on it is great, but I have one
concern. I noticed when I get to between
65-75 mph on the freeway, that my rpms
hover between 3500-4000. Is this normal
for this type of engine/transmission in a
Civic?

Sounds like the transmission isn't upshifting to the highest gear. HTH. -Jim
