If you have an automatic transmission, you may be experiencing torque converter clutch (TCC) lockup shudder. There is a solenoid in auto transmissions that engages a clutch in the torque converter to save gas on the highway. These frequently stick open and cause problems at stoplights. IF you have an auto, a pretty good way to check if this is the problem is to put the car in neutral at a stoplight (CAREFULLY) and see if the problem goes away. Also, the clutch should not engage until the vehicle is warmed up, so if your problem happens when your car is cold, this is probably not the issue. Sometimes, these solutions can be inexpensive. I fixed my own TCC solenoid on my 1993 Chevy for about $20. Other times it can get spendy.
When a transmission gets low on fluid and starts to slip, what is
slipping is the clutch packs. When this occurs, the clutches wear out
quickly. In this instance, you will need to remove the transmission and
replace the clutch packs (transmission overhaul). Check the transmission fluid level and make sure that if you do add, don't over fill which is just as bad if not worst for the Automatic transmission and only use Mopar ATF+4..Dodge transmission is picky to what transmission fluid you use. Good luck and keep me posted.

I had the same problem with my dodge neon. Its your transmission slipping. My car had to have all the transmission flushed and it helped alot, but the longer you let it go, the damage could be permanent.
shuddering brakes means you need a brake job... If you're up to it, take the rotors off and have them turned at a local auto parts store. pick up new pads while there...
Also, get some transmission fluid. watch the type for dodge is different than, say, ford. Drop the transmission pan and let all the old fluid drain into a large pan. replace filter while pan is off. replace and fill with recommended amount. [see owner's manual or chilton's guide.
Or - take to a mechanic and tell him. replace the pads, turn the rotors, new xmission fluid and filter...
