We changed the shifter cable because it would pop out of drive and into neutral when you would drive. Now that only happens when you take a corner tight it will pop out of drive always. We adjusted it and the same thing happens. It's got a lot of play.

Usually this is caused by the shift linkage at the transmission binding, which will cause tension, and even though drive is engaged, as soon as you get a bit of a torque shift, it'll drop into neutral.

The linkage can sometimes just be removed, cleaned, and lubed up, but often requires replacement as the plastic will get damaged during removal if it's real bad.

I second Roverguy7.
This is a typical example of gear linkage slipping.I cleaned and lubricated mine proactively long time a go and it is still fine, but replacement is fairly easy as well.
