Do you put it in sport mode (gear 3)? It will naturally go into higher RPMs then, because it knows you want more power. The reason it would redline is that the computer knows that it you get more HP and torque at the higher RPMs. If you are flooring it, then it senses you want as much power as possible, and it will therefore go to the redline.

I have floored mine on occasion, but I always reach my targeted speed before it redlines. So I have never had it redline on me. I think the highest I have gotten it is around 5,500 RPM.
