January 26, 2005eh if you have to down shift you arent driving fast enough. hahahaha
September 14, 2005^exactly^ just make keep your speed up enough to keep your rpm's up and you'll have no problem. believe me, the hills in WV can get big too! i've found that my mom's minivan doesn't even need to if you're runnin about 80, and that's sayin sumthin!
January 3, 2006when I wanna pass someone on the highway I floor it and it downshifts to 3rd sometimes 2nd if I'm going 65. I guess I'm just fortunate to have a functional kick down lol.
February 11, 2011Pretty sure when you tap your brakes it unlocks the torque converter clutch, which let`s your rpm come up a bit. To actually get it to down shift ya gotta stand on it
February 22, 2011the best tip for ya guys is buy a chevy wont have to worry about anything then
