My guess is motor and/or transmission mounts that allow the engine/transmission to move around when the car goes over a speed bump. There is a cable from the gear selector to the transmission, and if the trans can move around while the cable is held in place, the result is a gear change.

Much more likely - being a computer controlled transmission, is a bad electrical connection - either at the VSS or at one of the solenoid valve connections. This is assuming the fluid level isn't low - - - -

Don't know if it applies to that transmission but I've heard of some Fords having similar symptoms when some module on the transmission goes back, it's some kind of computer box that takes readings from the shift cable and electrically controls things the transmission does.

Which is also an electrical connection problem.
