I'm noticing more and more that when the transmission shifts down to 1st gear as I'm coming to a stop it feels like someone has gently, but clearly, 'tapped' me from behind. I actually checked the rear view mirror several times. Any one else have that as an issue?

Is this something to be concerned about?

Doesn't happen a lot though.

and there probably is nothing wrong.

whenever they actually get the part in. (it was ordered a couple months ago). This downshift thing happens virtually every time I come to a stop.

on quiet passages with high frequency sound (like female vocals or clarinets/horns) Or, like radio reception on a just-out-of-tune classical music station. Frankly, I figured it was speakers or amp, but they diagnosed faulty CD changer. I have to say, I don't notice it with the radio playing so maybe they're right. I'm planning to drive up to the wine country in a week or two and I want decent tune-age.
