I have 2010 Civic LXS auto transmission jerks a little hesitate to shift at low rpm, slow speed, for example when i'm at stop sign and push a little on gas pedal the car jerks moves forward and back little. it's like transmission trying to find the correct gear to engage. When i push hard on gas pedal transmission shift fine from 1st to 2nd to 3rd.
I changed the transmission fluid with Honda ATF it looks it helped a little and eased the jerks, but they still there.

Has anyone have this problem? what did you do about it?

My 2008 has a bit of a jerk between 1st and 2nd at slow speeds. Not sure about 2nd to 3rd. Shifts are a little sloppy on these cars but whatever.

I would say not to really worry about it. Our gen 8 is not known for automatic transmission problems. Just keep on top of the fluid changes.

If you were to take it to a shop, they would recommend having the whole thing rebuilt. NOT necessary. Shops always recommend rebuilding everything just to make money.
