Exclamation 1995 325i Downshift problem....I think

Here's my problem.....when the car is cold, and take my foot off the accelerator, it starts to downshift or slow down really hard as if I have my foot on the brake. This is my first BMW and of course I really don't know what it could be. My husband hates the fact that I bought a BMW so he keeps telling me, "I don't know" and yeah he knows about cars....

Another issue I hear in the engine when accelerating is, it sounds like it's in a low gear when starting off. Is this normal? This happened in my SUV and they said it was a O2 sensor....what do I know, I'm not a mechanic.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
