I've had a similar problem (same car, same auto) and replaced the transmission fluid/filter as well as the idle speed control motor.  It seems to me that an excessively high idle speed can give the impression that the transmission is hesitating on downshifts.  Mine does the same thing until it reaches operating temperature.  Have you tried checking the fluid level? Or, switching between Power/Normal transmission modes?  You can download the manual from and check the transmission fault codes if you have a good multimeter.

Time for a little tranny work, maybe. How old IS that fluid? It's possible that it's time to replace or at least adjust the innards to get it up to snuff again. When you have the speed problem, does it seem that it is in low gear?
