Lurching/Jerking from Reverse to Drive

Hi Everyone!

So I'm fairly new to owning a Mazda and I have a quick question that I don't know if it's normal for Mazda's or something else is going on with it. When I backup in reverse and then shift back into drive there's a slight hesitation that occurs when I hit the gas which then causes it to lurch/jerk quickly. There's no sound that accompanies it, just the quick jerking motion. After that, it drives without any problems and this issue isn't consistent. Some days it will happen and others it doesn't, and it doesn't appear to be related to the weather either. I spoke to a car buddy of mine and he said it sounds like it's either a sticking solenoid or a computer issue. Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!

No I haven't replaced them, but do you think they would have worn out already in 3 years? Also I'm not getting any shaking or anything while driving or when I come to a stop.

I have this exact issue. Like your situation, mine doesn't happen consistently either and doesn't seem to depend on weather. I've got a 2012 i Touring. One other thing I've noticed in my first week or so of driving my new vehicle that may or may not be related is a slowness in acceleration when going a moderate speed and then flooring it. Could just be me adjusting to how a 4 cylinder feels in addition to drive by wire.

Hasn't happened to me in a while. I believe it's because I've been waiting until I come to complete stop before switching from reverse to drive. I'll keep monitoring.
