I have a 2016 3.6R with approx 25K miles and just started to notice a shudder that I believe is coming from the transmission when coasting. It is most noticeable when slowing to 40-45 MPH. Anyone else experienced this? Thanks. I have an appointment this week for an oil change and will mention to the dealer as well.

my 2nd transmission does the same thing when slowing from 20-15 MPH. dealer will tell you its all normal or can not duplicate customer's concern. I'd say just drive it, drive it until something catastrophic happening, hopefully you are still in warrenty then.

hey dog and hiker. I DID RUN THE SEARCH BEFORE POSTING. The only thread that was similar to the problem was thread #4 and there was no concrete fix. That is why I posted. Are you two sports the mods? I don't think so. Lots of friendly people on this site, I have gotten some good info and given some good info, just check my posting history. I will leave the comments about you two at that.

I noticed my 3.6 2017 has a very slight shudder when applying a little gas while coasting and once foot is let off gas there is a slight almost not noticeable shudder when going back to coasting. Car has about 9k on it. Doubtful I overlooked this before but something to keep an eye on. Wife does not notice it at all. It could be somewhere else in the drive-line or even engine braking but pretty sure it is in the CVT.

I really do not understand why people get bent out of shape about people starting new threads about old topics. Starting threads is what this sight is for! Also, there may be a knowledgeable person here who is not browsing old threads but can provide new insight to your old question.

Its NOT getting bent of shape. I start tons of useless threads. However, mine rarely double on a problem or issue. (Except my very 1st, where I just posted without searching) Most folks don't even know the search function is there. They just post a new question which is why there are 20 threads about steering wandering. Just adding another one to the pile of confusion ... is confusing.

Actually, when you post your question in an old thread it gets "bumped" right up to the top of the list with all the newest threads. By posting in the most useful old thread you can find, it helps to keep all the relevant information in one place which is helpful for other folks with searching skills.

This guy did a search as he explained, but you guys are throwing out the standard "do a search" complaint anyway. It makes for an unfriendly and unwelcoming environment. I would rather have people start new threads on old topics, than have old-timers snap at them. You have an option. Don't open the thread.

That may be your opinion, but it's inconsistent with the site guidelines. (You have read them, haven't you?):

2: The site has been around a good while. While new things occur every day, there are many things that are common to our vehicles. Try a search or two. If you can not find what you are looking for, ask away.

3: Please do not create multiple new threads on the same topic ... It really clutters things up.

New Topics
If you want to make a new topic please go through the old pages and use the search feature to see if someone has already made the topic you have in mind (for now post away!). Some forums also have 'Common Topics' lists that you may check. If someone has already made a topic you are interested in, please feel free to reply to the old topic no matter how long it has been inactive. We encourage members to revive old threads. You don’t need permission to make new topics and, in fact, making good new topics is a great way to earn respect from everyone. Take a moment out to think of the proper forum for your new thread so the moderators don’t have to move it.

Again, a search was performed here. It is clear now that some members intentionally want to be unfriendly and unwelcoming. I was thinking about becoming a lifetime member, but not anymore. Nobody wants to pay to be chastised on their free time.

Would there be any value in adding a "transmission shudder" subforum to Problems & Maintenance? As mentioned (many times) this question comes up many times, and it seems that depending on the speed where the shake/shudder occurs, it either is the torque converter being normal or a sign of an impending $10k transmission replacement.

I have had the same problem with my 15 3.6R. Letting off the gas from a constant 50mph produces a four step shudder until the car slows a bit. Re accelerate to 50 and release and it repeats. My wife is oblivious, but it's a nagging thorn in the side for me. The CVT just ruins this car and I had such high expectation for it.
