Jerking and Jumping while gears are shifting

2012 Chevy Cruze LS Automatic/manual-80,000+ miles-bought it used in 11/14 New battery put in a few week ago as well as an oil change

My cruze has just started jumping and jerking while driving as its shifting gears. It feels as if its getting stuck in a gear. its also been taking longer for it to speed up after being at a stop light, ive been having to press the pedal down more just for it to get up faster and to change gear.
Is this usual or does anyone else have this problem?

take it to an auto parts store and have them run a diagnostic test and check what codes appear.
sounds like you are only running on 3 cylinders,and your pcv valve might be leaking
check the vin# and call GM parts department to see if the emissions recall for all 2011-2013 1.4T w/auto was performed,
this could be the problem

I've already contacted the dealer but I cant be seen even for a diagnosis until Monday of next week. I have called all 3 of the local dealers within a 30 mile range and they all have told me not until next Monday
