I need your def of rough shift. I cant even see a shift puling into a parking spot - 1-2 occurs around 7MPH - that's rolling pretty fast to be cranking into a spot!
if the engine suddenly sped up and then engaged hard - that's not a rough shift. that's slipping. Take it for an inspect at a good mechanic.

This^^^

Do not touch it yourself. As soon as you do you it's your problem. Find out what the laws are in your area. I would make them fix it or offer a full refund.

ravenworks It probably a host of many things, I would tame it to a ASE mech and get documentation of what is wrong.
I had transmission,tourqe converter and PCM replaced,trust me it's expensive but I was under warranty.
All in all I would have been out $3600
