Low Speed Jerking When Pressing Accelerator

Hi Everyone,

We recently bought a used 2015 MKC AWD 2.0L with 70k miles on it. So far it's great, with one exception. At low speeds (5-15 mph) when I press the accelerator pedal, the car jerks forward. It does this no matter how lightly we press the pedal.

I'm wondering if the transmission is staying in 2nd while coasting, then trying to shift to 1st when we hit the accelerator, causing the jerking motion.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix available, maybe an update to the TCM?

I get this first thing in the morning. First mile of my commute is up a slight grade at about 45mph.

When warmed up it is fine.

Thought by now (85K on same 2015 2.0L) it would have thrown a code if it was ignition or injector but I am not sure.

When I manually shift the trans, staying in a lower gear does take it away.
