    CTS Downshifting

    Hey whats up, ive had my CS (03) for about 2 weeks now.. the only problem is when im going through town.. 30-40 mpr.. and i release the gas... it feels like it takes a downshift.. (like shifting gears on a manual) It shifts up fine when increasing speed.. It just feels like when i coast from 35 mph towards a red light... before pressing the brake it feels like it shifts down awkwardly... Anyone else have this problem? any i ideas? is this normal? I checked to make sure my snow mode or speed mode where on, and they are both off. Thanks for your time!

    Have you replaced the crankshaft position sensor? That seems to go bad on just about every 3.2L that's come on this forum. This could be the cause for your rough downshifting.
