Is your foot on the brake pedal when this vehicle is "skipping"?

No. I went on a long trip this weekemd and the care seems to be trying to maintain cruise control setting while desending a hill. Then it runs perfectly on flat or incline. Could there be a filter in need of replacement?

Try this. When this vehicle is skipping on a down a hill....shut off the cruise. If the skipping disappears...it is definitely a cruise problem. If "skipping" persists...its an engine control problem. Ideally we would road test this vehicle with a scan tool in place. This would provide much needed data ...helping us pinpoint the cause of this issue.
