09 KK Shudders in Reverse

I don't drive my wife's KK all that much, but this summer I've used it a few times to tow a boat or my trailer and I've noticed a pretty obvious shudder when it is stopped and I put it into reverse and try to back up with the trailer. It will shudder pretty good if I'm light on the gas.

Could this be the "torque converter shudder" the TSB talks about for '08s?

Hi
I have the same issue with an 08 technical told me it's how it is. My customer not happy I even put a new box it and it was still the same. It's something to do with controlling the torque to protect the box and is a software issue.

Interesting. Well, I'll definitely remember to bring it up when I bring it in next and see what they say. It isn't a huge deal, but I don't want to mess something up, especially when I'm in the middle of nowhere with my boat.
