has anyone experienced the car unexpectedly shuttering just when you're almost coming to the complete stop? its not so much of a shutter than it is of two awkward thumps... feels as if i stepped on the brakes hard twice before stopping (though i braked in a normal smooth motion).. this problem comes and goes.. sometimes the brakes feel normal.. other time it does the two awkward thumps..

this is very troubling to me... i just picked up the car about 2 weeks ago... should i bring the car in? anyone have any idea what's the problem??

Best opinion is to get it checked... You are still under warranty...

I get the same once in awhile in standard mode. I think it's the trans catching up to a down shift. Does not due it in sport mode

Yea. It only happens in standard mode. When I turn it onto sport mode it doesn't happen anymore. If it's the transmission catching up to a downshift it sure feels almost like an awkward knee jerk reaction.... Is this supposed to happen? Or something that should be fixed?

I would hope it is a software fix. But without a Maser service bulleton it would be up to the individual dealer, and of course it will never do it when they drive it.

So u think it's a software problem? Did you bring the car in to service when this happened to u?

Wondering if the majority of people experienced this glitch also..

Waiting for a part to come from Italy before I go back to dealer , will mention it then. These trans are all computer controlled that why they are "adaptive."

Same thing. Just started happening after six months of use. Feels like car surges as the transmission shifts down to first. Occurs with very smooth breaking. Almost feels like I need to concentrate or I might bump into something. Seems worse after hot days or extended use...but it is intermittent.
