Unhappy Powershift Gearbox Judder!

As I've just retired from work, I bought myself a car. It is the first car that I've bought for myself since 1982 as, throughout my career, I've been fortunate to have been provided with various company cars over the years. I bought a 2016 B-Max Titanium Powershift with just 11,000 miles on the clock from a local Ford main dealer. Being used to driving automatic cars, after just three weeks of driving the car, I became aware of the 'juddering' when gently trying to accelerate from around speeds of 10-20 mph and 1,500 rpm. Initially, I thought front tyre pressure or road surface issues, but now after finding this forum and reading the comments in various threads, I beginning to wonder whether my decision to purchase this car was correct. No Ford warranty left on the vehicle but got three months dealer warranty on the car, so I'm leaving the car at the dealer for them to investigate. From reading the comments here, when I describe the symptoms at the dealership, I'm sure they will know of the issues! Let's see what happens.

Don't get fobbed off with a repair or computer reset. It needs replacing.
