Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
It only lasts a second then kicks back into 3rd or 4th for a while. I really feel it(like the brakes getting slammed on).It happened about 6 times on my 10 mile drive usually around 35MPH.Any Ideas? Tranny oil level looked ok. Slightly brown. I drained and refilled about 4 years ago. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Call dealer for possible recall or TSB involving the VSA system activating brakes unexpectedly , maybe something similar to the honda pilot. Worth a check, might be a free repair!

These vehicles have some transmission pressure solenoid issues. It could be one of them acting up, or it could be the trans fluid. Have the TCM scanned for codes.
