yeah don't understand the complaints about the shuddering.... it's normal and gets better once you break in the engine... I've only seen one valid complaint of someone who said the car shuddered so violently his coffee spilled from the cup holder, and yes, that is a bit extreme but in these type of cars some type of shuddering is normal.

I can see why people would get worried about it though if they're not used to it.
