Hello,.
maybe it’s me, pretty new to picanto 1.0 3 cylinder
i have noticed if I go into 4th gear at 25ish mph and cruise at 30 mph legal limit, engine doesn’t like it, so I tried in 5th gear, doesn’t like it, starts to shudder a little, if I increase speed it’s ok, or drop a gear it’s fine.
is this common to these engines ?
thankyou

Well I think it is almost certain that you are changing gear at too low rpm.
I think you have hit the nail on the head, I was going by the number on instrument panel of what gear to be in for best economy, must admit it felt way out to me, had many many cars, none of them had this, I think I will ignore and drive by ear as I normally do
