I have an 09 S sedan with auto tranny. Mine is fine. When I push on the gas, it drops to the lowest gear possible to make that pass. Driving under normal conditions, the transmission never seems to shit pass 4000 rpms. When I push on the gas pedal all the way down, the rpms will go its full rpm, which is like 6500 I think, and shift to the next gear. Have you tried putting it in 1st gear manually and let it ride out to like 6000rpms and shift into 2nd? Im not to sure I understand what ur trying to say. I hope this info helps. If not, please write a little more detail of what ur trying to say.
