    Default Normal RPM at 70MPH?

    Hi,
    I was wondering what is the normal RPM for cruising at 70MPH with a
    warmed up 2006 GLS. A/C off. Mine is always at 2600RPM.
    Normal?

    Manual you should be reaching about 3000 RPM to 3200 around 70 normally.

    This is not normal. Obviously your car is going to explode at any minute. You must take it to your nearest dealer IMMEDIATELY or someone can DIE.

    For an auto, yes that is normal. Manuals are right at 3k. A/C has absolutely nothing to do with engine rpms at speed.

    for the record since you asked what other cars run at, mine is at 3k when doing 70mph.
    When you're out of fuel, your altitude is dropping and you're out of ideas...Eject! Eject! Eject!!
