2015 Acura RDX Sporadic Transmission Jerkiness


Topic starter

Hello!  I apologize in advance if someone has mentioned this symptom before for a 2015 Acura RDX.

From time to time, my 2015 Acura RDX will have a jerky shift from 1st to 2nd gear.  It'll be a greater jolt to 3rd gear.  The SUV has automatic transmission, and

it just registered 60k miles.  There have been no alerts on my dash informing of transmission, or other engine issues.

  It started doing this during the last 6k miles.  What's worked for me so far, when the car randomly experiences these shifting symptoms, is pulling to the side of the road.  Then, I put the car in neutral, engage the foot brake, put the car in park, and push the start/stop button to shutdown car.  When I push the start button again, and shift to drive, the transmission responds with smooth shifts again.

  These seemingly random, sporadic symptoms occur whether I've backed out of a space, or shift to drive from a forward facing spot.  Your thoughts?

When was the last time you changed the transmission fluid? 

And filter?
