    Hi,

    I just bought a new 2012 access cab 4 cyclinder automatic. I don't know if it's just me because I'm not familiar with new transmissions (been awhile since I bought a truck)...or what?,but...it seems like it takes too long for the trans to change to fourth. I know it depends on a few things, but I'm talking just gradually building speed on flat roads....it usually changes into third about 30 or 35 and then fourth about 65. That seems like a big gap between 35 and 65.

    Is this normal??

    Thanks

    Thanks Ken,

    That's kinda what I figured, but it just feels odd. Now, that I think of it...I had a 4 cylinder 85 Dodge D50 (Mitsubishi) but it was a 5 speed...so I'm probably used to that.

    So, I shouldn't worry that it takes so long? :) (sometimes not until 70 mph!!)
