Transmission Downshifting and Upshifting
I'm driving the CX-3 GS and am having trouble with my transmission. In automatic, when slowing down from any speed in 6th gear to say 25km/h, my transmission does not want to downshift to the appropriate gear, I would assume should be 3rd or maybe even 2nd. Then, when i try to accelerate again, it stays in 6th gear, shutters, gobbles up whole whack of fuel while slowly accelerating to a 6th gear speed. Also, it does the opposite when I'm driving up a steep hill - I get to the top and as I continue to speed up over the crest it refuses to shift up to the next gear and just continues to rev at 4000-5000rpm.
My solution to the problem is when I notice its not going to shift, i pop it in to manual and manually shift to the appropriate gear. I have taken it to my dealer a couple times and they claim nothing is wrong. It also generally revs pretty high on acceleration but I'm guessing this is normal for such a little engine.
Maybe someone can offer some advice as to what I should ask the dealer to look into or anything I can do at home.
