Curious, does it do it only when it is cold or also whwen warmed up. It behaves like a first time manual transmission driver is behind the wheel learning how to clutch and shift. There was a problem with this a while back and it was fixed b a software update. The SIB came out in 2007 I beleive.
When my clutch went at 22000 miles the first symptoms were slipping in the higher gears.
I was under the impression that the CDV would make this less likely to happen since it lets the clutch disengage slowly rather than dumping it. It makes it hard to spin the wheels and I wuld think that it would help prevent the bucking but I could be wrong
