2012 Honda Civic EX 'Engine Braking' with Econ Button?
I recently purchased a NEW 2012 Honda Civic EX. I love it! I'm just worried that there may be something wrong with the engine or transmission. With the Econ button on when I test drove it, it seemed like it was using engine braking like a large truck does when you let off of the gas pedal rapidly (the RPMs soar to down shift and slow the car down). I also noticed that after braking for a prolonged period of time at a high speed going down a large hill that it seemed to be doing this 'engine braking' thing again. The RPMs soared as it down shifted to decrease my speed. Is this considered normal? Has any one else noticed this??
