Highlander Automatic 5th Gear MPH

I have a 2009 HL V-6. The only complaint I have is that it won't shift into 5th until I reach at least 45-50 mph. I sometimes even have to let up on the throttle at that point to get it to shift. Seems like the mileage could be a lot better if it would shift earlier. Anyone else experiencing this or know if there is a TSB to correct it?

    Typically, you won't go into fifth gear until above 50 to 55 mph or so and when you get there you need to be driving at constant speed for an automatic to shift.

  • Well that's good to know. Guess I can quit watching the tach now. :)
