Default transmission downshift question

Have been driving my new (used) PT for a couple months now and really like it. However, since day one, have been noticing a very slight thud or harshness in the downshift when coasting to a stop...does it almost every time. Not noticeable when moderately braking to a stop. Is this something to be concerned about? btw, the trans looks like the A604, is that correct? Thanks. 08, base, 19k miles.

Automatic is a 40TE.
