superdlb is on a distinguished road

Mine does it also, worse at times than others. It is the transmission not down shifting out of overdrive and 6 gear. I have gotten into the habit of down shifting manually into 5 gear,in fact unless I am on a long road trip I keep it in 5th gear and that does away with the shudder. I have also noticed that I get better mpg's in normal driving situations if I keep it in 5th gear. I do not know if it is normal or supposed to do this but it does and Chrysler is never going to admit a defect in the transmission.
