ET Transmission slipping?

Hey all:

I've had my ET for just over a year now (2010 w/ auto, gls) and it seems as though the tranny is starting to slip. Certain situations, such as when I am travelling at app. 25 mph and let off the accelerator, then get right into it, the motor revs and then slows down, at which time acceleration begins. Also, I'm noticing the tranny seems to be holding shifts when I push hard on the accelerator, then shifts real abruptly. Has anyone noticed anything similar?

Have you checked the fluid level? What color is it? Does it look pink or burnt?

Ray G is an unknown quantity at this point
The trans. in the Hyundais are all electronic controlled these days with lots of 'features' to save fuel built in. One of these 'features' is to disengage the gears as the car comes to a halt, sort of skipping gears shifting back to first, which helps in reducing trans drag when stationary as well, by stomping the throttle in the middle of this eco mode the trans. controller suddenly has to decide what day it is, what gear it should be in etc, it can take a second or so to get it's act together, it's really noticeable on old Honda CRV's with lots of miles on the clock. As for the second problem, thats what autos do, with high throttle inputs the controller increases clutch apply pressure to avoid clutch slippage, this causes the shifts to feel abrupt. If the shift feel has changed considerably over the year I agree with scannertech, check the fluid for discolouration or burnt smells
