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.
