No idea how "hard" your car is bucking, but it is very very slightly noticeable on my X3 at around 60km/h (40mph), usually in Drive. The torque converter is trying to lock up but the speed is too slow. I bet that if you accelerate to 45-50mph then let off, the problem disappears because the speed is sufficient for the converter to lockup.
