My 2006 Hyundai Azera not only hesitates when shifting low gears, it sometimes 'slams' into 2nd or 3rd gear right after being driven at highway speeds for an extended period. What may be the problem?

No, I have not received any answer to my question as of now (1/9/12 @ 11:45 CDT).
Transmission problems can be difficult to diagnose withoutactually being there to see the vehicle. These are the preliminary steps I can takein order to try get you sent down the correct track .
First have you checkedthe fluid level of the transmission ? Second have you checked the condition of the fluid meaning thathave you looked at the condition of the fluid to see if it has like a burnt smell orbrown color to it? Have you checked the condition of the fluid to see if itcontains any metal particles in the fluid, look at the fluid in the sunlight from the dipstick. Do you have any check engine lights on inyour instrument cluster. If you'll take the time to answer these questions Ican then go ahead and try and assess a general direction for you to go withyour transmission at this point it's very difficult for me to diagnose withoutany answers to these questions thank you for using just answer I will beawaiting your answer..
Although the car car has in excess of 86,000 mi. on it, the transmission fluid was drained and replaced for the 2nd time about 12,000 mi. ago. Level of fluid was checked again about 2,000 mi. ago and was fine. No, check engine light has not come on.
Thank you for the input.. It sounds as if the piston seals that actuate the friction discs are worn or about to go out. One option would be to check with Hyundai to see if they have a re flash available for the transmission. The only other way to fix this is with removal and rebuild of the transmission. You might find an additive a try ro see if it could temporarily fix the situation. B/G products makes a transmission additive that has solved several problems for me in the past. Its not a mechanic in a can thought, it might be worth a try.
I hope you get this solved..
