Using your ATX like an MTX all the time is bad. The lower gears are there for times when you don't want to get into higher gears, like controlling your speed on a hill descent, in the snow/ice, towing [if you tow anything with your Focus].

Plus, you get much better performance from just leaving the shifter in Drive.
