Default Hard shifting between 1st and 2nd (2005 Automatic)

It did this once or twice about 6 months ago, now its doing it quite regularly, at least a few times a day... Its usually more noticeable right after i start driving the car...

When shifting from first to second (its an automatic), second gear dosen't seem to grab, then with a clunk, the car lurches forward when second gear engages, usually 1/2 a second or so... I don't notice it with any other gear change.

Sometimes its louder than others, but its still very noticeable...

Any ideas? Its a 2005 Mazda3s with 60k miles. First chance I'll have to bring it in is Tuesday morning...

There's a PCM update for 1-2 shift shock. Just bring it to the dealer

so it went away for a little while, then returned this weekend with a vengeance....

my wife and I started driving, it hesitated between 1st and 2nd, then literally THREW us into second... My wife and I almost hit our heads on the dash (which is scary considering we had our seatbelts on)

I just called the dealer to get it in for service...

Have you drained/flushed the ATX fluid in the 60k you've owned the car?
