Transmission Problem ??

I have a 2006 X Trail, bought back in the summer. The weather here in Nova Scotia Canada is starting to turn colder ( but still not to the freezing point). I notice is takes a long time for the transmission to shift into 4th gear ( auto trans). I realize it takes the trans a while warm up and reach full operating temperature but it's taking about 10 - 15 minutes to do so. I can drive approx. 12 km before this happens. Is this normal? Seems to me it should shift before this. Any comments ?

Thanks
Harvey

Yes it takes some time to go in to overdrive, not forth gear. it is all depends on how bad is the temperature!

Yes, it's normal. The tranny has a temperature sensor.

KA-T for life, yo!

Thanks for the replies. My other vehicle is a Honda Civic, this vehicle will shift into overdrive within 3 - 4 km, 12 km seems like a long time to me. This my be normal, anyone else have any experience with this?

Thanks
