ES8 Gear shifting

Hi All,

I have a concern with the gear changing in my car which I bought few months ago.

Model : Civic ES8

Model : 2005 - Face lift

When driving it's RPM always reach 3000+ before changing to the next gear. Anyway it does not incur any jerk. But I wonder whether this is a situation which needs to pay attention because as per my experience the gear shift happens in 2000 - 2500 rmp in many cars. 

Appreciate your opinion on this.

Many thanks

You're driving a Honda where the engine developes it's best efficiency at a higher rpm,..

+  Check the ATF level and quality with the engine idling after t had warmed up just for safty.

Thanks for the reply. Actually I changed the ATF during last July just after purchasing the car and I still drove about 5000 km after that. At the same time replaced all 4 plugs with genuine plugs and cleaned the throttle body as well. The engine idling keeps around 800 - 900 rpm with AC now without any variation. 

Do I have to worry with this situation regarding the gear shifting concern I have OR is it a normal situation?
