07 Hemi trans staying in 2nd gear

If i'm driving speeds of 25-45 and slow down to turn or go up a hill or whatever 10 mph or so i give it gas and it just rev's up i can tell its staying in second if i really mash the gas it'll drop into 1st but its a very hard drop ...is this normal it only has 1000 miles on it....

dentguy, it doesn't sound right. And being brand new I would get it back to the dealer and get it checked asap.

And



When you get a chance change your location to city and state please. Just so folks know where you hail from.

As for yours houstonhemi i i know if the engine temp isn't up to normal it won't shift into 5th til it reaches temp...And as for not wanting to downshift i noticed if you grandma it and look for good mpg it gets used to that i notice when i race around in it or tow my boat all of a sudden it comes to life and is very responsive and downshifts quicker.........chris

yes i do drive like a grandma, alot of times people get tired and pass me from red lights.

Even at operating temp. on the freeway it wont shift into 5th unless im going atlest 70, i can leave it at 65 or 67 on crusie for ever and i will be over 2 grand in 4th but if i go 70 plus and im lucky it will go into 5th and be a lil under 2 grand. Is this normal for an mds engine.
