Exclamation downshifting problems

Hey guys! I have a 2007 touring edition cruiser with 8000 miles on it. Over the weekend we took it on a 4 hour non stop road trip down south and when we exited the freeway and came to a stop I could feel the tranny down shift into 1st gear fairly hard. I didnt think much of it tell we came to another light and when we stopped the car down shifted into first gear again and actually pushed the car forward a few inches. At first I though we had gotten hit but then I realized it was the tranny. It also shifts hard when going from drive to neutral. Is this normal for these cars? I know Chrysler is weak when it comes to the trannys but man you would think they would last longer than 8000 miles. Any ideas?

Thanks a ton!

Take it to the dealer - you have a new car! No way should it do that at 8,000 miles.

Ok so heres a stupid question. Can I take it to any Chrysler dealership even if I didnt buy it from them? I actually bought it used from Carmax. Will they still honor the factory warantee?
