too low of RPM's when taking off or going into the next gear......shift above 4k, problem solved....don't be afraid to use the gas pedal.

exactly, too much fuel, and riding the clutch will do it every time, i have never been accused of riding a clutch, for me, it is in or out.

is not the flywheel or the clutch, usually a driver malfunction.

tbelow about 2200 rpm.

Mine's always had a bit of roughness, but it's essentially my fault. Got 64K on the car if IIRC.
then you are shifting wrong, that statement is so wrong.

Agree with this. Bring the revs up.

I don't get any chatter, no matter how low an RPM I shift at.

Really? Above 4K from a stop?

My 2014 (49K miles) sometimes shudders when taking off from a stop but only in 1st. If I take off from 2nd, no issues. And it seems to be an issue only after the car warms up.

As 2014s came with a 100K/5 year PT warranty, I just might have it looked at.....
