Thanks everyone for the replies. I was figuring this was the case but wanted to make sure it wasn't just me, lol. The last auto I had was a tiny 5spd in a 1.8t VW.

This happens all the way to 75mph or so. Wheel slippage wouldn't be the case here. Only in the rain I can spin tires until 80

And my mileage is just under 35k
