It's a long read, but the best source of info is the transmission sticky thread in this forum.

A lot of people have had this exact problem. Some people even get it resolved!

Some people have had their transmissions replaced but often the cause is a failing giubo aka universal flex disk. Some have fixed it by resetting the throttle sensitivity by setting the car in ignition position 2 (where everything comes on except the engine) and then flooring the gas pedal for 30 seconds. This will recalibrate the throttle to your driving style.

It sounds like it might be the trans shifting from 2-1.

Yes I had it done at the dealer ... Actually I had the whole car updated , cost around. 200 /250 . You can do just the transmission for about half the cost .
