I spent a lot of time in the MDX over the last week, and didn't notice any odd behavior from the tranny. On the highway, driving at 60 and above, taking my foot off the accelerator produced expected behavior. The RPMs dropped, and the car started to lose speed. It rolled along pretty well, but not out of the ordinary. At low speeds, such as 30mph, it didn't downshift or slow down extremely fast when I took my foot off the accelerator. It slowed down as expected, similar to other cars. I got a fuel consumption of 17.8mpg, with a hefty amount of freeway driving at speeds of 60 to 80mph.
