Check with a dodge dealer PARTS dept. and ask if there are any known problems with the ignition switch in this model. Had an intrepid a while back with same symptoms (sudden bucking & downshifts) key off then on , & it would clear right up fro a while-sometimes 2 days sometimes 2 weeks. ........Just a thought ----HINT-- IF they stock the part , that's a good sign they had issues.....remember I'm talking DEALER not a parts house.
