This is my first post.

I just reached 15K miles on my 2013 PF and I have experienced the shuddering 3 times, and all 3 times were within the last month at speeds below 30 mph. I am waiting to see if it keeps happening before I ask the dealer about it.

Welcome!

I wouldn't wait on it.... if it happens once, it will likely happen again. It's been said that if it happens at all, the damage is already done. Get it into the dealer now so they can you started in their diagnostic decision tree (there is a lengthy TSB available to them that helps them arrive at a particular course of action).

not very encouraging when someone at 15K miles starts getting the judder..this means it could happen anytime, not just the first 1K miles

For a long time now we have been hearing about CVT shutter/judder problems on this forum. It's been real quiet lately. Has the problem been solved or is it because the outside temperature has dropped significantly?

Mine did the 25 mph rumble strip judder several times in the first 3 weeks of ownership. And not a single time in 4 months since.

Hasn't gone away, Nissan just put a new CVT in mine last week. Hopefully that fixed the problem...fingers crossed!

Mine is at the dealer right now waiting on a new CVT, this is the second one. I had a new CVT in November, 2013. It shuddered after two weeks, then many times after. I mentioned it to the dealer all the time, but didn't really push the issue since there wasn't any real fix yet. I started to push the issue in the last few months and Nissan didn't want to replace my CVT, but put in the latest program it just made last month, which seemed to help so far. However, I wasn't going to take that, and after a few conversations, Nissan sent a specialist to take a look. He said that Nissan did not see any damage in any of the CVT it received back from customers. We agreed to pull the CVT oil pan to look at the oil. We did see metal flakes and shavings, so he agreed to replace my CVT. I suggest if you have had a few shudders, even if it was fixed with programs, new torque converter, or just stopped on its own completely, fight to get a new CVT or at least get the CVT fluid flush and look at.

I had my CVT replaced at 1700 miles and it reoccured shortly afterward. I have had it back to Nissan twice since and it has had the new TCM reprogram but I still have the problem. Nissan service mgr threw his hands up. Nissan consumer affairs refused to extend warranty and then refused buyback. They are supposed to be sending in a DTS to take a look at it. If he can't fix it Nissan will either have to buy it back or I will Lemon Law this POS. Very frustrating.
