I find the more I drive it, and so far that's only 1500 miles, the better we get along. It's like we both had to get used to each other (the transmission and I)Just getting a pulse on your experience with the 8-sp transmission.
1. How many miles so far?
2. Any major hiccups.
3. What do you like/dislike about the 8-sp transmission.
I noticed the same on my 2017 FWD with 25k miles. The downshifting causes a very short unexpected acceleration as RPM is higher in cold, but no big issue so far as speed is low and brake is often applied during coasting to stop sign.Yes, my 18 LE also downshifts, coasting to a stop. This seems to be more pronounced when the van is cold.
Just switched from Sienna AWD 2004 to this 2015 AWD LXE.Wow what a difference in comfort.I can now hear what my wife says.Lolol Good or bad ????Dude, go with the XLE. The leather alone makes the ride so much more comfortable. Plus, heated seats, Blind spot mirroring, power lift gate, etc. What's $2,000 or so more in 10 years? When we were looking, I sorted all the listed only by XLE trim. It really does make the van that much more wonderful.
