I recommend taking the vehicle to a Transmission repair shop . It could be the shift valves are defective , low fluid,or TCM needs reprograming.

1995 Buick Riviera supercharged runs fine but when I come to a stop it acts as if its slamming into a lower gear its automatic any suggestions on what the problem might be???

if you can run the fault codes then do so as it may have a problem in the TCM unit or a vacuum actuator for a gear selection process.

Check the fluid level. The symptoms you describe can be caused by low fluid level. If this is OK, I suggest you take it to a specialist automatic transmission repairer urgently.
