If one was in the system, there would be no need for Dealers to link up their portable computer to test for shudder levels when determining if new clutches were needed.

Believe it when I see it, you kinda proved it isn't there yourself.
Agreed.

I have the shudder issue as well, I believe.

I'm definitely going to wait on this update until there's confirmation that it's actually helping.

Sorry about your experience :/

Yeah i would wait it out. My 2014 has 11k miles on it and this "update" just made it worse. the dealer gave me the typical "wait 1k miles" nonsense. But it was a rough ride in rush hour traffic, that's for sure.

Again, the dealer almost surely applied the latest software update along with 15b22. The latest software has revised shift strategy and has to "learn" specific about your car, driving habits and clutch touch points. It will take a couple hundred miles to go through this process.

Mine is certainly still learning after 60 miles or so but is improving. Some of the behaviors are pretty odd, such as grabbing a much lower gear when accelerating gently during a 90 degrees turn and rough clutch engagements. But it is getting better at its job.

I'm being highly pessimistic, I know. I'll give it a couple hundred miles and see how it goes.

Agreed on the miles. Mine took a little over 200 miles to relearn everything and now the car shifts like a dream.

I'm keeping a log in my phone of how the car runs, what conditions, distance, traffic, etc. I really hope this refresh cures a little bit of the headache. I've had the car for 11k miles and it's been such a disaster. Some days I want to light the match and walk away and others I absolutely love the damn car.

I know how u feel. My 14 focus was a rental and it's had problems and the update helped a lot with the DCT in my car.

It has been another week since I had the 15B22 done and my 2014 Focus is shifting as smooth as butter - a really noticeable improvement since the TCM was flashed. It is the best it has ever shifted since I bought it new about 2 years ago. The occasional shudder is gone since the update last month. Will check in again as some more miles and time passes.
