Re: Shudder--Do all GC's have it?

This description is about right. It's like a hesitation or dieseling sound - if you've ever driven a manual tranny and are in too high a gear at low RPM just before a stall - it's like that. As soon as you downshift, you're fine an the noise/vibration goes away, but then you are accelerating so you slow down and it's back. For me I get it from around 40mph+.
Will be making plans to drop it off next week at some point to have it resolved. I notice it every day I drive, so it's very frustrating to me because I'm sub conciously looking out for it all the time.
