    • Bought my pre-owned 2016 75D in January.
    • Shudder at 65-75 miles.
    • Love it anyway.
    • Hit nothing.
    • Currently waiting for Roadside Assistance to call back about the tow and the Uber.
    • Ugh.

    The shudder is caused by the front suspension, not the back. I do not recall seeing a similar failure with the rear suspension...will be interesting to know what the heck happened.

    Believe the OP is speaking about a different kind of shudder than usually experienced.

    Most of the posts on shudder are with hard acelleration from low speeds. Sounds like OP is speaking about a shudder when cruising.

    Bet Service gets a quick handle on his issue.

    Did this happen while driving or while parked? Looks like it's probably another case of a broken control arm. Cast aluminum parts always scare me a bit, super strong for their weight, but brittle.

    Make sure you aren't on the "hidden" ultra low suspension setting ;)

    Whew, that could have caused a real dangerous situation. Keeping fingers crossed you get a Tesla loaner.
