Mine does it too. 73k on it and it doesn't seem to be anything bad. I test drove a handful and it seems that most did it. Anyone else want to chime in?

Mine just started doing this at 60,000 miles. It's due for a transmission fluid and filter change which should be next month. I'm hoping that will help calm this annoying habit down, but I doubt it. I'm going to have them look into this too since I'm about to run out of the 70,000 mile warranty and I'll report back. But, I don't expect much.
