The build date on my car is 8/11 so its fairly old but not as old as some of the other folks' cars who have been experiencing issues but who knows if that is a factor.
Mine was built 03/11, and has not experienced any issues.

It will sometimes shudder, which I believe to be normal. It typically happens when I'm not deliberate with the throttle, or when I shift at incorrect times (I also typically use select shift).

I also do not have the most recent gearbox update.
