Default Honda Prelude 1992 Si Jerks when accelerating from low speeds?

I Just purchased a Honda Prelude Si 1992 from Craigslist which led to a lil small shop that sells cars. He basically purchase them, fix if needed and sells. they were some pretty legit people so far. The prelude I bought has 200,000 miles on it, carfax says owned by 2 owners. checked car and bought next day. this is my 1st car. its an automatic. After leaving (first time driving, brother test drove the previous day) I noticed that when accelerating from low speeds like 10 or 15mph to like 30 or 40 the car does a jerk. besides that seeing how its my 1st car I would think the car engine sounds good cause I don't hear anything. I do understand that it is old. the car has been kept in great condition, but just curious if the jerk is something bad or maybe its just the fact that the car is automatic, old, and when the automatic gear changes it has a slight jerk. I asked my bro and he told me not to trip cause the car is old and I cant expect everything to be perfect and maybe its just the automatic gears changing. im curious is it cause the car is old and just one of those things old cars do, or is it something I should be worried about regardless how old the car is. Please someone give me an honest theral opinion. thank u

The jerking could be a ripped or broken motor mount, you dont feel them that much in automatics than you do in stick shifts. If you feel like its the tranny, check the transmission oil or have someone check it for you. Hope this helped!
