I got about 500 miles on my new '13 and I already notice it is smoothing out and especially with more power on demand, primarily at lower speeds and from a stop. I still have some strong shuddering from a cold start after the firts couple shifts but it is definitely improving for me already. I didn't really notice any improvements till maybe around 200-300 miles.
