2015 Murano SL Transmision

I bought my 2015 Murano SL new from the dealership. I drive the same 26 miles to and from work five days a week and almost always note miles per gallon when I stop. Two questions about the transmission.

First similar to another thread at low RPMs approximately 1000 I feel a jerking motion. This started at approximately 40,000 miles or at least thatís when I noticed that and almost always if I am going up in incline. To remedy this I just push over to manual shifting and it stops. I did not notice this before 40,000 miles.
The second issue I have which may or may not correspond to the above issue is at about 45,000 miles I started to notice that when I was coasting down an incline/ hill instead of the transmission declining in RPMs it would jump up to almost 2000 RPMs and act as if the transmission was downshifting and breaking at the same time. It will usually correct itself if I tap on the gas slightly. At the same time I noticed a marked drop in miles per gallon I was getting on my identical trips to and from work. I get vastly different readings because I go from approximately 1200 feet in elevation to sea level. Either way I have seen a drop of 3 miles per gallon corresponding to the 45,000 mile mark.

I am hoping this is not telling me that the transmission is going. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Proper transmission flush is probably the best thing at this point. I would find someone does it without out using a power flushing machine.

Have a good day.
