My 2016 BMW 320i with automatic transmission has awkward

Customer Question

My 2016 BMW 320i with automatic transmission has awkward acceleration habits. It keeps throwing me back or forward, and its miserable. I use the automatic transmission's "comfort" mode, and everyone else says it operating just fine. The car also grinds because it won't shift up a gear as it should from 3rd to 4th gear. I'm older, and I've had lots of cars... This will be my first and last BMW, and its very disappointing. Is it me??
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?
