Not the smoothest trans I've driven, but I can't complain.
My .02c would be to do a trans fluid flush if you don't know how old it is. A how to is in the Do It Yourself section here on the forums. Basically a new fliter and 3-4 drain and fills will equal basically fresh new fluid.
Also, you might try and reset the ECU. Easiest way: disconnect the battery, press the brake pedal several times to kill any system charge left, or let it sit for a while. Reconnect battery and go for a drive under common conditions and route. The car will try to learn patterns to some extent.
For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE try using the Google search bar at the top of the forum!
