Hello, This hesitation could be caused by many different things. If the transmission has never been replaced, it may be time for a replacement. Depending on how many miles you have on the car, the hesitation may be the first sign of a dying tranny. I'd recommend bringing it to a local mechanic just to make sure. Best of luck! CarGrrl
