Question after test drive

I was looking at a 2008 Limited Liberty and noticed a couple times at a stop when letting off the peddle the car would shudder. Wasn't sure if it was something to to with the engine or transmission. Any advise would help. Just wondering if it's something major, if so I don't want to buy the vehicle.

Theres a few TSBs for a Shutter in the 08 KK. Was it when you were accelerating then let off the peddle? do you know where the RPM was?

It was when I was at a stop letting my foot off the brake. I would barely get my foot on the gas. If pushing the gas pedal at all.

mine does that too, when the drivetrain is cold. it stops doing that when it reaches designed temp levels.

I never had that issue when i had my KK stock so i cant really say, but mine has larger tires on it now so it will behave differently than yours.

it sure looks normal to me, i mean it only happens when drivetrain is cold and goes away soon after it warms up. im @ 27k miles already and it didnt cause any problems at all. i have all outstanding TSBs performed on my car. it still does it. it might b annoying, but not harmful

My 2008 Limited Does it too... Felt kinda weird at first, but I have gotten use to it.. I have 43k miles now, and no issues with the liberty, except i have had 2 power window regulators go out this year..

I think you should be good with that many miles and no problems.
