Great, except for the transmission

This is a great car, however, the programming of the automatic transmission is horrible! To achieve high MPG, the transmission shifts to 6th gear around 35 or 40 mph! The result is very low RPM and engine noise. This happens in D mode. Going to S mode is not a solution since then, the shifting point is around 3000 RPM which is then too high. So hopefully VW of North America addresses this and does a reprogramming of the transmission.
Built quality! Fun to drive except for the transmission problem mentioned above.
VW of North America! Please provide a reprogramming of the automatic transmission! I love this car except for the horrible transmission!
