I have gotten all updates that are applicable to the car, but it still happens. Especially after driving and getting some heat into it. They reset the adaptive strategies again 2 days ago and the shuddering on take off has not been as bad but now when I put it into reverse and give it a touch of gas the shudder/stutter is clear as day.
I am more appalled that the service department told me to drive it till it blows up. Like seriously guys?
