2015 shudder at low rpm at 40 & 60mph

I have a 2015 EX with 60200 miles on it at 55000 I got the transmission fluid changed. Recently it started having a very small shudder when applying low throttle at 40mph and 60 mph. I am not throwing up any kind of check engine but it is concerning me. I figured I would turn to the wisdom of the internet before spending the $115 to have the dealership diagnose it.

With genuine Honda fluid HCF-2?
Wrong fluid will ruin the trans in a hurry.





You're only a few miles past the powertrain warranty, it may behoove you to take it to the dealer anyway.

I would believe so. I had it done at the dealership so to maintain the warranty. Yeah, you are correct hopefully the Honda dealer will figure it out.

Maybe it's something else? Wheel balancing? Did you rotate tires recently?

I used motor oil and other MTF's on my 6MT and all is fine and dandy in all its 80k mile glory. Torco takes the win in terms of smoothness and consistency. Honda's stuff just too thin IMO. Won't go in 1st gear sometimes with the OE fluid.

I had situation in a different car that caused a "shudder" at very specific MPHs. It turned out that a wheel had thrown it balancing weight.

Sometimes it can also be a driveshaft problem.
