Mine does it as well. I hate it. Seems like gear fishing. That tears up transmissions. Oh well. one more thing to add to the verrrry short list of things I dont prefer about my truck.....

Or maybe nobody felt like replying because it's common sense that a truck downshifts
It's not common sense....I've been working on cars/trucks for over 25 years and this is the first vehicle I've ever owned that does this..down shifting while coasting means less gas mileage and as I stated any transmission mechanic will tell you it's not good to down shift while coasting with an automatic transmissions because the drums turn in opposite directions for each gear and therefore this is an unnecessary shock to it. And that's why it a perfectly good question in reference to these new transmissions..... so don't be a smartass if you don't know what your talking about.....
