city driving in ECO mode

ECO certainly shifts at much lower RPM than Drive alone. My worry is that doing a significant amount of city driving, this will put undue stress on the tranny. Literally, 7mph it shifts to 2nd, 13mph it's in 3rd, at 25mph I was in 4th...nearly 5th.

Curious what reactions others have to the ECO mode vs D or S.

I think I'm going to primarily rely on D or S and only D-ECO when on hwy or cruising outside city.
