After taking off from stop the car shifts real hard around 2500 rpm. It also accelerates slow, rpms go up without accelerating, it takes to long to shift between third and fourth gear.

If the rpm's are going up and the vehicle isn't speeding up, it sounds like the transmission is slipping. Have you checked the basics? Is the trans fluid clean and full? Is the check engine light on?
