Question: Transmission downshifts hard when car is starting to come to a complete stop.

Hi, I have a 2000 Chrysler Voyager SE with a V6. It has about 120,000 miles on it. I bought it with 118,000 miles so I don't know the repair/maintenance history. I have noticed that when I am slowing down to stop at a light and have almost come to a complete stop, the transmission downshifts with a "clang". Is this a maintenance issue, or is there some repair that needs to be done? Thank you in advance for your advice!

It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
