My girlfriends CX7 developed a very abrupt take off

Customer Question

my girlfriends CX7 developed a very abrupt take off behavior. You have to be very smooth if you don't want the car to jerk. And today she told me the car is not shifting as it should. Could this be the TCM?

first step is a fluid and filter change and if that does not do it, the TCM replaced? I'm quite ok working on cars. Is that something I can do?
