Hi I just bought a little 1.4 clio for a new driver all seems to be good going through the gears however when I got it on the duel carriageway I open it up using kick down got to 70 OK and held it at 70 but it was reving high for about 7 to 10 seconds before changing up a gear. Is this normal amount of time to change gear.

hi
you don't say if your new to automatics / or not, so excuse me if i'm telling you what you already know.

you say you 'held it at 70' the computer therefore still thinks your accelerating, if you take your foot off the gas and re apply it ,
the car should then recognize that you have reached desired speed and change up.
