My car jerks when accelerating

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Peugeot 308 VTi 1.6 car jerks when accelerating. Normally it will jerk 2-3 times when reach 60kmh and 70kmh.Most of the time it will have jerks when I accelerating from constant speed. For example, when I drive at 50kmh and I start accelerate it will start to have jerking when it reach 60 kmh. Then, I accelerate to 70kmh and It will start jerking again. After 60kmh and 70kmh, normally there is no jerks anymore or sometimes I can feel small jerk once at 80kmh. But when I accelerating slowly from low speed for example 20kmh to 80kmh there is no jerks at all. Same goes to decelerating which no jerks occur.
