Default Cold Trans

In a 2K LS400, is it normal when cold to shift from 1st longer than when warm? It only happens for about 1000 feet and then it doesn't do it anymore.

Fluid is clean and not low.

It is a fully electronic tranny, so I would that is probably normal. The tranny shifting slower while it is cold.

My ucf10 trans shifts funny when it's cold as well as my 09 civic so I'm pretty sure it's normal

Common. The first drive down the street, is the longest 1-2 shift in ours. Only in that first 200' does it shift like that. I recollect the manual stating similar. No worries.
