Pontiac Vibe Toyota Matrix supercharged

2009 Toyota Matrix 1.8 Stock 0-100 (0-60) Acceleration
Stock automatic base Matrix, with the 1.8 132hp engine. Pretty standard economy car acceleration, about 10 seconds to 60mph. I found the transmission to be very reluctant to kickdown at highway speeds. I ended up using the shifter to manually downshift rather than estimating how deep I had to dip into the gas pedal to make it downshift.
