Yes I did know it does make adjustments, but if you drive somewhat on the harder side, would the computer then adjust to always start in first even when not driving hard at all.

Like I mean just barely pushing the pedal to build up speed, or granny'ing it as you put it, would it start in first?

I do have to admit I do granny the car more than I push it hard, but In LA, there isn't much room to go zooming around town.

Even when driving on a 25 mph street and accelerating up to 25 mph very slowly, it still seems to be starting in first.

Like I said I hadn't thought about it until I started noticing it shifting 3 times when driving normally.
