Default Gearshift issue with 6 months old Corolla - Please Help!!

I am facing a strange issue with my Corolla H5 bought in 6 months back. I am based in Bangalore. Whenever I shift gear (especially 1st to 2nd and 4th to 5th). I get a slight jerk. I have taken the car twice to Ravindu Toyota they as they are usually known for did not acknolwedge the problem. After I made a big hue and cry those guys asked one of their so called senior technician to check.

He came on test ride with me and to my surprise gave a brilliant suggestion to change gear with half clutch pressed . Anyhow again I hade a hue and cry with their service manage and he got the clutch bleeding done..it's been 4 weeks since then but the issue still remains.

I wanted to know from the Corolla owners if they also feel a slight jerk while changing gears and also suggest if Nandi Toyota has a better service than Ravindu? Or any other local Toyota mechanic in Bangalore for getting the car checked?

PS: Mods I had posted this in a wrong thread earlier. Thus re-posting in the correct thread.

As Aamir posted, could you describe the jerk with more clarity? Is it a jerk from the gearbox, engine or clutch pedal?
