In the last month, it does it every.single.time I drive the car. Hills, flat surfaces, starting up, speeding up. I can't find a pattern or trigger. I've been driving since 15. My experience with this is what transmission slips have been like in the past. this sort of feels like that, except the engine really revs up sometimes (could be it trying to go in gear?). If I let off the gas momentarily, then press the accelerator again, it will usually shift normally. Today it seems like it is taking longer to recover and shift. Sometimes it will shift, but then when it tries to go in next gear right after, it does it again.
Just had it in shop last week for oil and tires. They said they "felt" what I described, but no codes come up. Said fluid levels were fine. ??? I don't think they drove it, because miles out were the same as drop off. This is the dealership where I bought the car and they have a good service reputation (or did last year).
I'm scared it's going to do this on the freeways here, not to mention with the dumb people that follow too closely I might get hit when it doesn't go. Plus, it's a new car and shouldn't be having these issues.
Any ideas? Does this sound like transmission, or accelerator, or engine, or what? Am I not explaining it correctly to the dealership? Any advice/help is appreciated.
ETA: I don't have a lead foot at start ups...I accelerate slowly from a stop and when increasing speed. It is how I was taught to drive.
