Default 92 Accord Ex...auto trans downshifts hard

Any ideas as to what the problem maybe?

93 Honda Accord EX with automatic transmission 180,000 miles I bought 2 days
ago
seems to downshift pretty hard when I let off the gas.

Thanks for any help on this!

Rex

======================

Most common reason for 'solid' shifting is non-Honda ATF. You'll be
changing your ATF right away anyhow, might as well use the real stuff.

A solid shift may be a good sign, if you think about the way a tranny
works, BTW.

Somebody will argue, but I think there's something in Honda ATF that
isn't in DEXRON (which I always thought was called DexTron) am I
embarrassed.
