1 > 2 shift

I was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this.

Recently, the 1 >2 shift started to act confused. Id think it was slipping but, it grabs hard when it does realize it should be in 2nd gear. The car use to bang second all the time, even after the recent flash. The best way to describe it is, it starts to grab second then, releases the clutch someone as if it wants to grab 3rd then, decides second is the gear to be in. This is just somewhat recent, think, a few weeks.

It will do this in all modes as well.

I have the same issue its always between 1st and 2nd. It kinda feels like a new person learning to drive stick. Like it feels its losing power then grabs hard and does it like 3 times before it finds the gear??? Is it the "dual clutch" I'm not 100% if our cars have that since i ve only heard it a few times. It will do it when I go slow average and fast. But when I go "fast" ill will catch and then a sec later when it should shift it does it, power-no power-p-np-p-np-goes. Can someone help on this please?
