Probably the clutches slipping, but it really depends on your dealer if it's going to get fixed. I suggest you take it in before the 3 year/36k mile mark.

Some people complain of shuddering and get an entire transmission and clutch swapped. Others have weird noises and jerkiness and the dealers brush it off as a characteristic of the car. All I can really say is take it in and I wish you the best of luck.
