Does a cold 1.8T engine keep the Tip from up-shifting?

I drive only five miles to work, and I find myself slapping the shift lever
to the manual position in order to get the car into top gear.

Of course, then I'll stop at a traffic signal and end up trying to get out
of peoples' way with the car in a higher gear than I expect.

So...am I in for expen$ive transmission service? :-)
