Hi mutiger93gt,

I would definitely advise that you take your vehicle in to the dealership so they can take a look. Additionally, I want to escalate your case to your region's customer service manager. All I need to get started is a PM from you with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll do the rest!

Some people complain of shuddering and get an entire transmission and clutch swapped. Others have weird noises and jerkiness and the dealers brush it off as a characteristic of the car. All I can really say is take it in and I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks for offering up this suggestion, PratoN.

Have a great day, everyone,
