Re: 1 Day old 2013 Laredo V8....exchange?

Can you recreate the problem? I've had some strange things happen on my 2011 but it only happened once or twice in the 25K miles I've owned it. When ever something strange happens I pin the throttle to the boards and run it hard for a while if nothing else its alot of fun!

Re: 1 Day old 2013 Laredo V8....exchange?

My personal opinion is that the "shudder" is an electronics problem, not a sign of a bad TC, or other mechanical issue.

Furthermore, I'm relatively confident that it does in fact have to do with the MDS system, and that the 14s will also have the same shudder despite the fact that they will be God's gift to automobiles and perfect in every way.

IMO, it's the truck not needing to stick in v8 mode, but wanting a little more grunt than 4 banger mode. You can get around this by buying a v6 that will always want more grunt.

I may be mistaken, but I think in autostick mode it disables MDS. So you should be able to put it into 6th gear in autostick and run it up the same hills and not see the shudder.
