2007 Acura MDX - transmission and guel consumption

Much to say about this car, most good, although it feels like they have overdone some electronics and not tested all on real people (list will follow).
I have one major question and would appreciate if anyone has some insight:
When driving at 60MPH I take the foot off the accelerator and the RPMs hardly drop. It feels like the engine continues to pull fuel and "do something" when I would expect it to simply wind down.
Also, when driving between 25 and 30 MPH and take the foot off the accelerator the car shifts down brusquely, and it feels is as if I were driving with the parking brake on.
Fuel consumption is poor, regardless how carefully I drive.
Does this seem normal? Having driven many different automatics of all sorts of makes and models (US, European, Japanese and Korean), this is a first. It seems like the car is trying to do too much for me and definitely the wrong thing.
