My 2004 mazda mpv jerks to the left then straightens back out. This usually happens when I have to accelerate really fast or right about the time it shifts into the last gear.

Sounds like a plugged catylic convertor. You might check with a GM dealer to make sure if it falls in the Special Policy coverage to get it replaced under warrenty, it has to have less than 120,000 miles on it though.
