Sounds like the lock-up circuit or overdrive linkage may need attention, depending on transmission type, which would mainly be activated at highway speeds, while cruising, which explains why mostly on longer trips & not around town, it occurs. I can't see the fix/repair being too extreme, if taken to a transmission shop or dealer for proper diagnosis by those experienced in that field, and it may end up saving you money in the long run, because if it's going in & out while cruising or otherwise, It certainly won't do the rest of the transmission any good, and may cause enough damage that you would be looking at a big bill in the end. Nothing wrong with getting 2 opinions, just make sure they are from those who work on them all the time, not those who think it's this or that. You'll be glad you did.

There could be a few things wrongs here.I would start by checking my sensors this means you will have to get dirty. To check them locate transmission sensors then use a volt meter to see if sensors ohm. remove wires from sensor place leads to sensor.if it does not ohm out then the sensor is bad if it does then you know that the sensor is working.if all the sensors are working.make sure all your relays and fuses are working also.if its electrical then it can be anything from a bad ground to a sensor.if its not then it has to be mechanical.make sure the fluid is full and not leaking.if it seems that it is mechanical then have your local ase tech look it over.
