2011 Honda CR-V Question: Transmission shifting

My new Honda 2011 crv seems to die between the speeds of 40-50 mph. It seems to shift to early and losses power. I had it serviced by the dealer and they said this is normal because of the torque. Was told just to accelerate and the car would then shift. Still doesn't seem right and my 2005 cr v never did this. -
Answer 1
The amount of torque you feel as accelerate may be enough that as you actually get in to the higher gears the shift has more slippage and is not as harsh and so you don't feel it as much. It may be normal as they say. Ask to drive another one like it at the dealer and see if feels the same. -
