Chalk up another '03 Civic Hybrid owner with the judder problem. I have had my car for 7 1/2 with just fewer than 95K miles. Dealer says I need a new transmission at $3k. The shudder has been happening for close to a year (didn't know about the recall), but recently seems to have gotten a bit worse. I am wondering how unsafe it is. Once moving >10 mph the transmission is smooth. Sometimes when I decelerate it will lunge a bit. Is it time to get things fixed?
