    I have been driving my wifes prius lately back and forth to work. The other day I drove my truck and noticed going down hills it felt like it was down shifting and lost speed. Did I just get used to driving the prius:eek: or could there be something wrong with my tranny?

    By the way I have a 2010 TRD Sport stock w/ 270/70/17.

    I haven't read the specifics of how/when in the manual but I know coming down a steep hill if I quickly push the brake and let go the engine will kick down a gear and slow me down. This only happens if speed is gained after the brake touch. Also, I usually have to touch the brakes twice or three times for it to work.

    Sometimes on steep declines it will downshift twice from top gear.

    That's what happens when you drive a Prius. You forget how vehicles are supposed to perform.
