I have noticed that my transmission has been sluggish lately. This is particularly noticeable on the freeway. Sometimes I have to tap on the accelerator to get it into higher gears.
Car: Honda Civic 98
Outdoor Temp: -10 to 25 degrees (Minnesota winter)
Warm up Time: 5 minutes slow city driving
Driving Style: Gentle (However my teenage son drove this car for a couple of years, and his driving style is "type A, get out of my way").
Maintenance: Complete tune-up, fluid change, and new timing built last month
I just drove my son's 98 Toyota Tracel (auto trans: 120) and the transmission was noticeably zippier.
