Transmission failing?

I was in manual mode shifting from 6-7 at around 3k rpm. The shift happened, but the car lurched back and forth like the engine cut out or something. I put it in comfort automatic and accelerated to 7th gear from 6th. It did the same thing. Car lurched extremely hard. I was able to replicate it about 5 times. There was no error code. It disappeared after half an hour and happened again a few hours later when I drove in the evening. This time it lurched hard from 5-6th gear while 6-7th was more subtle.

what can be the reason? This never happened before.

thats the thing Iím worried about.. I can record the video, but it wonít show the car shuddering. The only way to prove it would be to have a tech in the vehicle while I drive it. Would they allow that?

there were no lights on the dash and no messages. Everything looked normal. The next appointment is 1.5 months away. The transmission acted up again today while I was on the highway. It jolted so hard from 5th to 6th gear. It happen mostly during 5th to 6th and 6th to 7th at around 3500 rpm shift. Happens in all drive modes.

It got fixed a week ago. It was the transmission valve body.

Just an update: the problem started happening again a week after the valve body replacement. Iíve been driving the car broken since then.

Sounds like a misdiagnosis. Call them back and see what they offer.
