Oh wait, I just re-read your post. I guess I wasn't lacking power because I was willing to downshift into 2nd or 3rd gears without feeling disappointed about it. That's what those gears are there for, right?

Anyway, the car never disappointed me, on the steep hills, in the deep snow, no matter what I threw at it.
It was just a little disappointing that 3rd couldn't handle everything
