Default 2002 accord problem

I have a 2002 accord se 4cyl. I bought it about 2 months back with about 40K
Kms. I am not sure how to describe this. Just before coming to stop the
transmission
shifts down and I feel as if the car is going to move forward. Its pretty
weird. I have never felt that in any other car I have driven. I had a rental
2005 accord last
week and it never did that. Is this normal ???
The transmission is pretty smooth otherwise...
any suggestions would be appreciated

Honda trannies are different than anything out there, especially the way
they shift as they are coming to a stop. . . . .

That said, you really don't know how well that car has been cared for,
and you'll never go wrong changing the tranny fluid early. Use only
Honda Z1, and do it yourself. You'll get nearly 4 quarts (litres) out of
it, so have 5 on hand. The 'special tool' is just a 3/8" ratchet or
T-handle. A large painter's tray, or ice cream bucket will work. Short
drive to warm it up, remove the filler plug (dipstick), crack the (very
tight) drain bolt loose, and pull it out a half inch, so it can dribble.
Don't pull it all the way out or you'll hose your tire and hand with hot
ATF. Let it drain for twenty minutes. There's LOTS of places that the
fluid has to slowly drain out of. New crush washer, wipe off the
magnetic drain bolt spotless, and put it back together. Make a very long
'dunce cap' funnel out of a legal manila folder, taped together on the
outside, and refill with a 1/2 litre less than you think you got out.
Start engine and run it through the gears. Check and top up
CONSERVATIVELY. Don't overfill.

Drive it a week and do it again. You'll sleep way better. :-)

Very well said 'Curly'. Honda's automatic transmissions are 'unique' when
compared with automatic transmissions of many other automobile
manufacturers. Dating all of the way back to at least the late 1980s your
statements hold true. Many of them downshift pretty rough at times--even if
they have been well maintained over the years.
