It was an automatic, and when I would stomp on it it would drop to the "passing gear" and the rpm's would climb...but then when I took my foot off the gas completely it would remain in the passing gear. It wouldn't down shift back to 3rd or 4th which I was in before until the revs dropped way down. Is this normal?! I have never driven an automatic BMW until this, but it sure didn't seem right!
