Has anyone encountered this problem? Any idea what could be causing it?

Thanks!
Check your rear brakes before you buy any parts.

If they are not adjusted properly it alone can cause the bucking you describe. With such low mileage you shouldn't need rear brakes yet unless you do lot's of stop and go traffic and live on a dirt road.
