I didn't have much problem going up the mountains on my trip. Went through three passes all around 4300 ft. Tranny downshifted out of o/d and was able to maintain 65-70 with rpms at 3200 to 3500. Strange, when it downshifts the rpm goes up to about 4000 then within about 10 seconds it drops 400 to 500 rpm. must be the lock on the tourque converter cutting in. I agree, great car on the open road. Only problem is the drivers seat back gave me a back ache.
