Hi all, just purchased a 69 plate Captur 1.3 TCE 130 s edition and I’m not sure if my gear shift indicator is clearly out of sync. At around 35mph it’s asking me to move up to 4th gear. At 40, it’s asking me to move up to 5th, and at 45 it wants 6th! After previously owning a Clio 1.5 dci, I very rarely moved from 4th gear at 40mph doing the bulk of my regular city driving. Anybody else experiencing this with their Captur?

How strange! I thought 6th gear would be for speeds upwards of 60mph...?
If it is out of sync - it’s quite off-putting 🙁

It's probably set for emissions testing,rolling road,to obtain lowest readings. It is not much use in the real world as it cannot/does not take into account road gradient,bends,traffic density etc. But,when it says "change down" I do take note as chugging an engine is never good.
