My 2012 does this too. When I first got the car it was really apparent, but I've gotten used to it now. You have to remember how big the engine is, and the amount of compression it has. Engine braking is very effective. You feel it as soon as you lift off the the throttle.

You probably notice the resistance when going downhill, as the ECU detects acceleration with foot off the throttle. Does the car drive as expected in cruise mode?

I've noticed it most often on flat roads in mild traffic with speed limits of 35-45. Have noticed it occasionally on declines but its inconsistent. Yes, the cruise control works fine.
Have appointment tomorrow, will update all on what is found.

Well, you are all correct. The engine will begin to downshift when you take your foot off the throttle. He says its most apparent at 35-45 mph but happens at all speeds. Thanks again for all of your replies
