transmission concern

took my 08 f150 with 3500 km to dealer concerned with the transmission having a harsh 3-2 downshift when slowing down during a turn and then accelerating to create the downshift. It also feels the shifting is just not timed correctly (to early on the upshift and a delay on the downshift while driving). Took the tech for a drive and he felt the harsh shift but stated it was normal. I have owed many trucks in the past (not fords this is my first) and not one had this type of shift concerns. Is this normal for the Ford f150 with a 5.4L or was I just given the brush off. Sorry for the length of this post any comments would be great.

Yup... My 06 does the same kind of thing. I bought a programmer to make the shifts a bit stiffer, but it only helps a bit.

does this occur at lower speeds(40-60kmh)?if so is fairly normal i've found that when driving steady 40-60kmh to select o/d off will lessen this concern(trans won't be hunting between gears)

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
