Tranny Issues???
Just bought a 2011 outdoorsman with the HEMI! Not sure if i have issues or if all the trannys are like this. I have a few issues.
- everyday on the way home i climb a hill then yield and turn onto a flat road . when i slack off to turn and then acceleratre on the flat surface , the tranny doesnt knock it self down it stays in the gear she was in while driving then all of a sudden she kicks down a gear and burns the tires, very annoying.
- while driving on flat rd at about 2000 rpm i could be at the speed i want to be and then slack off, the tranny in my ford would then drop to idle, this thing just keeps going the same has if i had my foot ont he gas.

Overall im not impressed with how the tranny handles the power of the hemi and low speeds, anyone else have issues??

That doesn't sound right.....a trip to the dealer to have a service tech check it out is warranted in IMO.
