Hi Natasha. My 2012 hatchback now has 34,000 miles, and I am stll having the shuddering at 1-2 shift mainly, and the noises that go with it. I have noticed that it's often perfect when cold but after 30 / 40 miles starts creeping back in. I wanted to mention the (13) step drive cycle recommended by FOMOCO, and provided to me by my dealer. Originally the service Mgr. did the cycle and it really improved the shifts; sadly, it did not stick. Since then I have done it with good improvement, but the shudder is back agaiin. Being an ex-Ford guy, I can't believe that Ford went ahead with this trans..
