Default Hard 1-2 Shift on 06 Mazda3 auto

I have an 06 5 door s

Only when it's cold out and/or the car hasn't been driven for a couple miles yet, does my transmission shift pretty jerky from 1-2.

Once you drive the car for 10 mins, it shifts fine and smooth and quick. Or when its warm out, it works fine.

Anyone have this problem and did you fix it?

Mine seems to be in between shifts for too damn long, about 1 second and then jerks into 2nd, so I have about 1 second tops where I have no power and its waiting to shift. Which is annoying first thing in the morning(only time it'll do this) and I have to make a left turn into fast traffic.

This happends to the ATX, 1-2 hard shift, I Think there is a TBS or something, but its a easy fix. Get it to your dealer, tell it them your problem and then probably they are going to reprogram your car.

BTW, it has happend to me...

I think the dealer just needs to reflash to ECU. No more hard shifting for me in the mornings

does the reflash change your other shifts or does it only address the 1-2 shift?

I had the problem on my 04, they did a PCU reflash, and it made everything a lot smoother. You can still notice it a bit, but its MUCH better than before. I also had my auto trans fluid replaced and it also helped with smoother shifts (at 15k).
