It was in the Dealer Connection Broadcast Message yesterday morning. But I don't have access the text of the TSBs newer than September of 2012 yet.

(In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't even be publicly publishing this information?)

Probably not, but the cat's out of the bag now. I used to have access to some of this information, but I don't work for that group and my access has expired since I was unable to change my password from outside their network.

I had access to whatever they published in dealer connection as well as the service manuals and all the tsb/ fsa info at that time, can't see any of it now.

Well, I called my dealer and asked about the TSB and he said he'd call me back. Fingers crossed!

I called my tech to make an appointment for an oil change for my ST. He said he had a software update to address the trans shudder and said he would update my wife's Ti's sw when it came in next.

The TSB does exist.

I would also be interested in this.

I may be picking up a 2013 Ruby Red SE Hatchback tomorrow, have to see if the driver seat is comfortable, travel 100 mi/day to/from work.

We were also wondering what they will say after we give them info on the trade-in vehicle, 1006 Zx4 Ses w/184,300. miles.

Ok, I went today to my dealer to change my winter tires (I know, late) and after telling him about two episodes I experienced, he checked the car and did the TSB 13-4-6 on mine. TCM reprogramming. I also asked him to perform the TSB for the low washer fluid warning and he did it. And yes, it works ! I see now the message in the center console (of course, my whasher fluid was very law) every time I start the car. Put some fluid on it, message is gone.

What those episodes were ? Start the engine, push the acceleration but the car had almost no power to advance then a hard shift with a bump and back to almost no power. Stop the car, wait 10 seconds and restart, everything ok !

I drove it after the TSB and everything is fine. I hadn't any other problems with the DCT. And yes, I have the "grinding" sound but this is almost since 3000 km. Now, I am at 41 700 km with my 2012 FF.

So it's still grinding, but it drives better? Or has it stopped acting up altogether?
