Mine is currently at the dealership to attempt to get the tranny update re-flashed. Just got the call (it's been in the shop now for 6 hours...not in the parking lot, it was actually driven into the shop while I was there 6 hours ago), and the kid on the other end (seriously...he's like 19 *tops*) tells me the service manager couldn't find anything wrong.

His exact words? The manager said, "That's how these transmissions work". Interesting...of the 12-15 other dual-clutch systems I've driven, they've shifted perfectly and never had a shuddering problem. Ford should tell Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes that they've been designing their clutch systems incorrectly for the past 20+ years.
