Had my clutch replaced and the slip is gone. When they fixed your seal did they replaced it? Take a look at the parts they used which should be listed on your worksheet. Also I am very leery of a clutch "cleaning". I am an old time drag racer and when clutch friction material got contaminated it had to be replaced. Don't know what kind of material they are using now but if the trans fluid leaked onto the friction material I don't see how it can be cleaned or restored. My car had the leak and did not surge/shake on shifting until the trans got fully warmed up. Maybe your repair needs to be revisited?

The parts list shows 2 "SEAL ASY- OIL", 2 "SNAP RING", a "RETAINER" and assorted nuts and bolts. It also shows brake cleaner, so that's what they used to clean the clutch.

I've noticed the same. Car seems to be pretty decent until it really warms up. Not like the engine temp has warmed up, but I haven't driven the car for 30 mins or so warmed up. If I ever go out to the mountains and drive on high way speeds then get into the city that's probably the worst. I don't get the grinding noise as much but wowzers the shifts are way off haha.

Still don't believe in cleaning friction material - especially if the oil or contaminant has soaked into the material. Brake cleaner is fine to topically clean material like shoes and pads to remove finger prints and such. No way can cleaner remove all contaminant. Just another attempt to save a few dollars.

Ellisd - it took at least a half an hour and at times almost an hour for my shudder to start. If bringing your car in I suggest letting the dealer know you want them to drive the car when you bring it in after warming it up.

I have not taken our 2012 in as I have read many many posts regarding the new shift mapping, and I dont want that mapping. however, I have also read about bell housing leaks and other issues with the original trans setup. I have had the car serviced regularly at my dealer, and they never mention low fluid etc... I get the shudder at low RPMs/speeds too. Its an occasional issue, but seems to be getting worse. Anyone have any idea if this TSB goes beyond the 36,000 mile warranty. We did buy the 75,000 mile warranty. The car is at 42000 mile currently.

My car is doing same thing.....curious about warranty. Got 49,000 on it now. Drivetrain is supposed to be warranted for 60,000......should be covered in my opinion.

I got the TSB applied a few weeks back, service tech mentioned it was covered by my premium ESP.
