Default trasmission reluctant to downshift from 3rd and high fuel consumption?

hi there
I recently bought my new car through a family friend.2000 Hyundai accent auto owned by a 90yr old grandpa since new with only 45k on the clock. im used to driving a manual so I don't know if its just me not used to it but when I slow for a corner to say 15-20km/hr and accelerate out the transmission remains in 3rd gear unless I give it a really good prod then it changes to 2nd or 1st. the acceleration when It does this and stays in 3rd is ok but I just wonder if its normal or is it just burning out the torque converter. also im only getting about 380-400kms out of a tank when driving the same route my old 96 pulsar used to get 550kms from the same fuel. is this normal I would have thought this new car to be using if anything a little less. thanks heaps for replies so glad I found this forum its great!

Yea my automatic transmission does the same thing. you have to punch it for it to downshift. And when coming to a stop sign, you have to come to a complete stop or it wont downshift out of third. I'm still kind of looking into it.
