how hard are you planting it down? if your just coasting i would expect it to shift anywhere between 22-2500, but the further you plant it the longer it will hold the gear normally. with power ON mine will hold to 28-3000 with little accel if that helps

perhaps a service might solve it..

autos tend to be fussy with this kinda thing

When my auto blew it did very similar thing. I would hold revs until it had enough road speed up and then skip 2nd all together and just go to 3rd.

before it did that it would hold revs like you say yours is, if i put the pedal to the floor it would bounch of limiter before changing.

Turned out to be 2nd gear destroyed.

I would suggest taking it for a auto service and get their opnion.

Could also be a servo issue as well.
