Hello, my dad has a year 2011 Kizashi FWD with CVT that seems to be suffering from engine shudder when the gear is slotted into D without any throttle input. It happens during braking to a stop as well. Does anyone have any idea on what's causing this? Thanks in advance.

It seems to be a fairly common thing to happen with the CVT. The Kizashi CVT does have a traditional torque converter that is locked/ unlocked by the CVT ECU - perhaps that has something to do with it?

I'd bet the cause is some dealership driver yanking it between R and D without coming to a complete stop. :( This is a common problem on this transmission which is also used by Nissan. Nissan has had A LOT of issues with this transmission compared to Suzuki.
