Most 4-cylinder cars equipped with automatic transmission don't have much power on the highway. This is why the car downshifts alot. It's very likely that there is nothing wrong with the car.

i say that it is just a feature of the traction control or the abs and nothing to worry about

"Most 4-cylinder cars equipped with automatic transmission don't have much power on the highway. This is why the car downshifts alot. It's very likely that there is nothing wrong with the car." Thats correct. This car is UNDERpowered especially the 4 cylinder one. The car's computer *ecu or ecs* sees that the car has not enough power feeding it to the wheels so it downshifts automatically gives you more power. same with all cars
