Thumbs up Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Electronics - V6 Autobox Problems

I've been the proud owner of a 2001 Laguna II 3.0L Initiale for nigh on three months now. Apart from a few niggles it's been fun to drive (and excellent value for money), and every bit as good as my previous car (Vauxhall Omega 3.0L Elite).

Most serious of the niggles is the lumpy gearbox (it has the auto/tiptronic). When driving normally it is smooth enough, until it comes to braking to a halt. As I brake, the box changes down giving engine braking which causes the car to lurch. This engine braking seems excessive and I am worried that it might indicate some serious problem waiting in the wings.

Any thoughts anyone?

Currently in hidnmine's garage:
2007 Clio DCi Initiale, 2009 Audi A6, and a 2009 Triumph Sprint ST
