I have a new Honda Accord V-6 with an Automatic Transmission, and have
noticed that the transmission seems to downshift whenever I am coming
to a stop. From what I have read, it seems like this has to do with
the Grade Logic Control. However, it displays this behavior even when
I am just coasting on flat ground. The car will downshift when it hits
a certain speed, and I will feel a the transmission grab. Can someone
tell me if this is indeed due to the GLC? Is this normal behavior?
Also, I can't see how having the transmission absorb that momentum
everytime the car is coming to a stop could possibly be good for it? I
haven't been able to find any good information on the GLC, or how it
could relate to this behavior. Thank you...
