Agressive Downshifting in Automatic

Hey guys, first post! I have an automatic 2015 GT and when it's in Sports+ mode in D, it downshifts very aggressively because of the rev-matching. Is there any way to prevent or make it less obnoxious? I drive it in S mode with paddle shifters sometimes but it's not as fast as the automatic computer shifting in D Sports+ mode. Appreciate it!

You can try pulling the fuse that will reset the computer learning for shifting characteristics. Disconnecting the battery for awhile may do the same, but not sure. Regardless, the shift points will be determined by your driving habits. Or, look into a custom tune. I had a 2016 Auto previously, and agree the downshifting in automatic Sport mode was absolutely obnoxious.
