Does anyone in the world pay attention to the silly up-shift light that Chevy installs in the Sonic's instrument panel?

I mean, I know it's there to promote fuel efficiency and all, but come on: It's actually suggesting that I upshift to a higher gear when it's already only pulling like 1,700 rpm, which is lugging for this little four-cylinder.
