Hello everyone, 


Just wanted to see if anyone else was suffering from "jerking" transmission. This problem started occurring in my 2015 Ford Fusion Energi about a week ago.  It started with an occasional jerk under either light to moderate braking or acceleration, where for a moment it would seem that I would either loose regenerative braking (during braking) or loose power to the wheels (acceleration).  The problem generally occurs once or twice when driving after startup, and can happen with the transmission cold or warm, and then goes away. The jerking or shudder occurs for only a moment or a few seconds.  It occurs both with the electric motor, and the ICE, though the problem is much more noticeable when it happens with the ICE.  


No trouble codes have been set.  Besides this problem, the car drives and handles fine, and provides no other clues (leaks, smells, discolored materials) that something is wrong.  


The real problem I've had (other than trying to diagnosis this) is to be able to get the problem to repeat.  It's not consistent- sometimes it will happen, other times it won't.  All my attempts to get the problem to repeat have so far failed. As soon as I can get the problem to occur consistently, I'll drive it down to the dealership, and be able to give precise instructions to a tech on how to illicit the problem. 


And yes, the car was purchased new and has 3200 original miles on it.


Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.

Mine will once in a while make a shudder/jerk as I come to a gentle stop (e.g. approaching a red traffic light). All seems fine as I resume driving and it only does this on rare occasions. It is not repeatable.
