I was driving home from work this afternoon, and while most of my journey is at a steady 50mph all the way, when I was coming through the town I live i was going over the odd speed hump, and when I put it in 3rd gear, without accelerating or breaking it felt like the car was breaking.

It didnt feel anything like when engine breaking, and I wasnt going too fast for it to be in 3rd gear.
It made it feel like I had accidently put my foot on the break when I hadnt.

I then proceeded to put it in 2nd and then 4th at the same speed to see if the same thing happened and it didnt. I put it back in 3rd and it happened again,

I just cant imagine whats wrong if something is wrong in the first place?!

I wouldn't think anything of it, unless it happens again. Most likely you just threw it into 1st, especially if it felt like you were braking. Maybe you hit the speed bump too hard and threw off the DSC.

could be the DSC or ASC

Maybe car was pulling back due to engine temps for just had a 'moment' due to the ECU wobbling over sensor readings etc.... they sometimes do this
