Exclamation 2018 TLX V6 Transmission Jerk

I'm leasing a 2018 Tech-Pkg TLX V6 since March 2018. At about 2-3 months ago I've been experiencing this weird transmission jerk, like trying to change into gear. It happens when I'm at 1 or 1.5 RPM and between 15-35 miles. It always happens when I'm in traffic (which in Texas that is every day), driving slow. Otherwise, it drives normal. I've tested it and it occurs in ECO, NORM, and SPORT mode driving.

Today I took it to Acura to have that checked and asked if by any chance there were any recalls. And yes, there is a Fuel-Pump recall with this model. They think that probably this transmission jerking could be contributing to this cause. Once they put it in their computer to run the necessary updates then see if that fixed the problem.

Has anyone experienced this transmission issue or fuel pump issue for 2018 - 19 models?

I am not aware that there have been issues in 2018's or 2019's reported.

I have the same experience but it happens when I let off the throttle a bit and the car is shifting up. Iíve also done the fuel pump recall change so I donít think theyíre related
