Yes I come to a complete stop. The shudder happens when starting from 1st to 2nd. I don't mash on the gas usually and if I press ever so slow I can't notice the shudder.

I've had my car almost 4 months and it just started doing this last week. It's a used car with 27000 miles on it. I've driven it on long trips and had no problems in the first 3 months i had the car and I drive the car the same way I have when I first drove it.

It drove and acted fine until last week. Now I'm even embarrassed to drive it because of the shake problem. Also I noticed decreased gas mileage. There are not noises with it either and it started doing this before the update and still continues after the update I had last Friday.
