I have a Honda accord exl and would like yo know at what rpm should my car shift gears? 1and a half or 2 rpms.
Thank you for writing in. As a general rule of thumb, you want to shift between 2,500 RPM and 3,000 RPM. Shifting a lower engine speeds can cause damage to the powertrain, and you will want to get the engine speed higher than 2,000 (or the 2 on the RPM gauge on your dashboard). If you need to downshift, you generally want to wait until the RPMs drop down to 1,000.
