I recently purchased a used 2007 Sienna LE (40,000 miles) and I've noticed that as I approach a stop or deccelerate around a corner, the RPM will jump up. I'm not sure exactly what gear I'm in, but I'm usually traveling at about 10-15 mph. Is this typical with the Sienna, or Toyota in general?

In order to increase FE many newer cars are using "light/soft" downshifting to keep the engine RPM above the point of stalling during coastdown, thereby extending the fuel cut time/period. These downshifts should not provide a significant enough level of engine compression braking for your FWD or F/awd to be really hazardous but still noticeable until you become used to the "new" feel.
