dan50,

My technical adviser said flingwing1969 summed it up nicely. For an excessive shudder, the dealer can look into it and fix it. He also said it might be felt when creeping forward or backward very slowly, which is characteristic of the vehicle and transmission. Itís meant to be driven, not idled along.

Itís great to see the community helping out, flingwing1969; thanks!
