2018 Ford Escape - Jerking

Every time I take off from a complete stop my car jerks it starts at 20mph and goes through 45mph it’ll do it about 3-4 times with about 5mph-10mps apart. I keep it up to date on everything. My thought was transmission or something fuel related. and thoughts?

Off hand it sounds like the transmission. But since I would expect it to be under warranty, tell the service writer at you dealership the symptoms and let them make the diagnosis and repairs.

If this is really a 2018 web based thoughts are useless . You are still in the warranty period so you don’t want to do anything or have anyone but the dealer look at this problem.
