Sounds normal to me. The torque converter is in lockup mode so your rpm's will stay up until you slow down more, or tap the brakes to release it. iirc ;)

Sorry, that was incorrect about the brake, I had it mixed up with another car I drive. Mine works exactly like your vid.

Waitnig for the big storm tonight!

This is pretty funny. Is this LITERALLY your first auto? You've never driven an auto car before?
And yes, itll automatically downshift and flick the RPMs up when it does.
