Transmission problem
2009 Other Hyundai Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 7200 miles

Dear Pro,

I have recently noticed from about 3 days that when I switch from P, D, N to R in my Hyundai i30,

It doesn't respond on the spot.
I mean usually in my car when I get the R, the car start moving automatically and smoothely, now when I get the R, it doesn't move for like 4 sec. And then it starts moving backwards.

This kinda worries me since it has been only 8 months for the car.

Why would that happen and is it dangerous?

It is still about 7000 Kms till I get the car to the periodical service.

Please advise.
