It's not as bad as other cars. The '09 Civic 5AT I had previously, if you didn't wait for a second to hear a click sound after putting it in D and you rev the engine, it would result in a loud bang. That was scary the first time it happened. I had to stop, park and look under the car to see if something was leaking.
kinda similar to this, (funny story)
back in 2007, my friend bought 07 mazda 6 AT, he revved engine in N position then switch to D, after that car no longer move forward in D position, he had to shift to M mode then car would start moving forward, and switch back to D and car would work fine. (so he had to do this every time he made complete stop) He took it to dealer and they said tranny was broken.
this happened within couple of month of the purchase of brand new car
good thing this repair was covered under warranty..
