    Hello Tacoma World
    I am new to this, not sure how its done but will give it a try. I have a 2015 Tacoma double cab 4X4, and every so often, when braking going downhill, the transmission will downshift to a lower gear on its own. I have been trying to take notice of when it happens so as I can tell the service person about how and when it occurs. Has anyone else noticed that happen? If so, what if anything was done to fix it?
    Thanks
    GoldenJoe

    Thats a good thing, unless its dropping you into 1st at 55 mph, it will help you save your brakes. Pretty normal for that to happen.

    Thanks to all, it eases my mind. This is the first automatic in a Tacoma, I have had two pre-tacomas and one first generation, all 5 speed manuals, gee I miss a stick.

    Normal on my 2015. Does the same thing on my wife's 2016 Lexus GX460. Not all the time, circumstances have to be just right.
