That sounds right. My last car had a 4.29 final drive and it is exactly 500rpm more at 65mph in 5th gear. This is the main reason why I traded it in for a 2013 5 Speed Hatch. 3 years of 3500rpm on the highway got real tiring and the mileage, I know of V6 Impalas that did better than my old ride at 75mph.
