Sounds like it could be a dealer warranty issue

Yup, my TRX does same thing ( though I think mine does it about 40 mph or so)
nuttin wrong with a little engine braking to prolong the brake pad life...

Totally normal. I can feel mine downshift through at least 2 gears while slowing down. I can feel mine at around 50 or so on the exit ramp off the freeway, then again from 2nd to 1st at stop signs. (barely noticeable at stop signs.)

I feel mine too. I like being able to feel the trans do its job.
