Default 2003 wrx automatic problem

Hey guys, ive noticed this a FEW times, while commuting home from school. I have a uphill climb, and certain spots it requires a shift into 3rd and second, but every once in a while, on relatively level parts of the road, the transmission will refuse to shift into the final gear, causing me to be running @ around 3-4k at 40-50 mph, when i know it should have shifted and dropped down to 2.5k... checked fluid, not burnt or low,( maybe a cm high on dipstick, but that shouldnt be a problem), anything else besides needing a rebuild?

These transmissions are smart. It could just be holding gears longer because if the type of driving your doing. It does not sound like something is wrong with it. How many miles do you have?

What Temp is it outside? If its cold it can hold gears longer to warm up the fluid faster.

Yeah i was hoping it was that the ecu was anticipating the kick down so it just stayed in gear,,, i got it at 133k(with NO HISTORY of its past, smh, risky as hell, i know), and now its got 140k, and im guessing it has missed a few scheduled maintainance jobs haha, i dont even know if it had its second timing belt replaced because there isnt a speedometer reading on the tag on the car!
thescreensavers: its usually between 50-65F (paradise, ca), but i always warm it up untill it hits 110-130F(bare minimum) measured on TorquePro before i take off, and it should be up to temp by the point on the mountain where it does this, because its near the top of the mountain
