I just bought a 09 dodge grand caravan sxt, and have noticed the exact same thing! I plan to take it to the dealership since it is still under its 5 year, 100thousand mile powertrain warranty. I wonder if it is normal, or something defective with the transmission. I can feel it shift when it does, like its shifting hard. I only have 33457 miles on my vehicle. Hope its not something wrong with the trany, my ford loving husband will never let me live it down
