I'm sure this is a byproduct of the 9-speed tranny, but it's quite annoying and arguably a distracting/unsafe side effect. Whenever I am coasting and off of the throttle while going down hill, the car literally lunges forward as it harshly downshifts into one of its incredibly short lower gears. Has anyone else experienced this on a regular basis?

Same here... a lot of people reporting this behavior, it's inherent property of 9 gears transmission and will remain there until addressed by Acura...

definitely catches you off guard, but I am sort of used to it now...

For me its only really noticeable when manually downshifting, if i let the car do its thing its fine.
