i have steptronic and sometimes when im going downhills (no acceleration) my rpm needle would just go up and down up and down for no reason and it feels like my gears are just switching back and forth. Is my transmission slipping?? If so, I hope the dealer would give me a new one :)

i have 32K miles by the way

If it is shifting up and down, sounds like you have a problem. Not slipping but more likely a software problem. Time to call your dealer.
