I have, as yet, not found any reference in the owners manual regarding a waiting period after a cold start. Page 54 should clear up any questions on starting procedures.I have the same thing. Jerky for about 2-3 seconds around 3K rpm in 2nd the first time I am in 2nd after a cold start. IIRC there have been other threads/posts on this and it is "normal". I find if I let my car sit for 30-60 seconds (as suggested in the Manual), this tends not to occur.
