Manual shakes with clutch engagement

2012 GT 41,000 miles

I'm experiencing a shake on clutch engagement in 2nd and 3rd gear. It's intermittent but is happening more frequently. Anyone?

I'm 99% it's not stability control, although it's getting cold for the summer tires; it was 62 today and it happened on several starts.

Thanks

This sums it up. Found in another thread.

http://www.freeasestudyguides.com/ma...h-chatter.html

Question is would this be warranty qualified? Looking for your input.

Learned on the site clutch is considered a wear item and covered up to 12k miles.. this is BULL*&^%..

Grrr Ford, i haven't even taken it in yet and i'm starting to get hot..

Clutch chatter usually isn't the result of a production defect.

Don't get mad at Ford. Plenty of people can completely destroy clutches in a few thousand miles that a manufacturer shouldn't be held responsible for long term problems with clutches. Tires are the same way.

No, idiots destroy their clutches in a few thousand miles or those that compete on the strip which is an understandable cost of doing business. Within the article I hyperlinked, not all components are considered part of the clutch that can contribute to the chatter.

I'm questioning if a dealership would do the proper due-diligence to differentiate warranty/non-warranty issues. Sad state of perception of our domestic manufacturing dealership networks.
