Hey guys,
Have had the car for 2 weeks and just noticed this with my RPMs.
When I let the car slow down on it's own from let's say 55 to 35 mph range. Around 40 mph the gears shift down (it's an automatic) and I can see about a 500 RPM increase. I am pretty sure this is normal, but I wanted to confirm.
Does this RPM change mean anything?

Thanksk.
