Default Transmission question

I recently purchased a 2001 Chrysler Sebring sedan, 2.7 liter engine. I have a rough shifting problem when down shifting from 4th to 3rd gear (automatic transmission). The rough shift occurs while im breaking at about 30 mph. Is this a common issue with Chrysler transmissions? It seems like I may have a faulty sensor or low fluid level. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!!!!

It's common enough to be discussed several times on the forum. Browse around and you'll pick up several threads. Since this is a used car, you probably don't have any maintenance history, so you should change the tranmission fluid right away. Make sure you get ATF+4 type 9602 fluid. That may solve your problem all by itself. You could have a problem with your solenoid pack, or maybe something simple like a bad electrical connection or sensor. The computer that controls the transmission may be throwing error codes so you want to get them read.

My new Avenger has the same tranny and only 18K miles and does the same thing when it's cold.
