henryd1981 I ended up taking mine to the nearest dealer instead of the dealer I bought mine from, mainly because the dealer I bought mine from is about 20 or so minutes away from home. The dealership I bought it from is equally as far away from work.

Same here, think it should apply, and the same number on my service sheet, TSB 14-0197. I went in first thing in the morning (service opens @7:30am) and had the car back to drive to work the next day (1:30pm). I did take mine to the dealer I bought from, and this was the first time the car was to any dealer for anything (48k miles).

henryd1981 Here is a one week update: as expected, the shudder is gone. Clutches still trying to break in and transmission still trying to learn my driving habits. A couple of weird shifts here and there but nothing to worry about at this point. Glad I took it in when I did.

VanceVEP72 I found the solution to my DCT woes... a 2015 Ford Fusion SE.

My take is that dealers may not have a person dedicated to transmissions only, so that they keep up with specifics of troubles and fixes.
The dealer I went to has a guy who only deals with transmissions, thus he was probably up on the problem, knew exactly where to look/check, and the proper fix.
I also think it is how the tech implements the 'fix', did they replace the clutch pack or remove/clean/replace.
This is probably on a dealer to dealer basis, I have dealt with a couple 'bad' dealers over the years, and when I moved my favorite dealer was just too far to travel to and I had to pick a new dealer, think I got a good one.
