I'm hoping that contacting Crystal will help with a resolution, as I've been reading this thread and see that new issues with the DCT have come to light, and that replacement of certain parts may fix the issue.
I know this routine. Hopefully, Crystal can help get your dealer to do the right thing. The shuddering is NOT normal.
