Just this week I'm having the same issue with my 2015 SRT, even had witnesses in the car. Mine is dropping from 3-2 gear or even 2-1! But not always although it seems to be happening more often. A bit concerning on a 4 month old $90K rig!

Did the new paddle fix it??

Absolutely fixed it. Took dealer ~2hs to install the paddle.
Mine had an error code stored in memory, dealer hooked up and determined the wrong signal send by paddle.
I couldn't believe it at first and it happened intermittently on mine but how bad is that when you are in 2nd and want to speed up and bang you're back in 1st...

In my experience, it makes no difference going uphill or down, towing or not towing. RPMs are RPMs and it doesn't care about engine load. I can shift up to the same RPMs regardless.

Having said that, if I shift up to a gear where it's not able to maintain speed on an uphill, it will eventually drop back down on it's own if the RPMs start dropping from losing speed. I can have the accelerator to the floor trying to maintain speed, but it won't downshift until the RPMs start dropping.

The transmission has no idea whether you're on a hill or not. It only knows what RPM you're at.

Re: Both paddle shifters only downshifting???

I have this issue. Up shift sometimes down shifts. Seems to happen more when not accelerating hard but don't think this is 100% consistent. Dealer claims no fault codes found but I'm going to compel them to order a new shifter before I take it back for another go at repair.

Mine goes on today for new paddle (Hopefully) and a second replacement steering wheel volume button.

See how she goes.....

Re: Both paddle shifters only downshifting???

I'm going in today to do a ride along with the transmission guy at the dealer so he can see the issue first hand (they couldn't duplicate). From there the plan is that they will order a new shifter and get me on the schedule.

Was able to duplicate for the transmission tech and he agreed that it is likely the shifter. They are ordering the part and should be installed before the end of the month. Will report back then.

New shifter was installed Friday and the issue appears to be fully resolved.

My dealer apparently couldn't 'replicate' but since I've had the new TB (1week) the issues all but gone, only had 1 questionable shift and normally I'd be tearing my hair out using the paddle shifters..... Hope it continues this way keep you posted
