Hey guys, I just purchased a 2013 451 about a month ago with 35k miles on it. I love the car but have a question about something I've noticed that may or may not be normal. It seems like any time the car has sat up and I first take off, I feel a slight shutter after traveling 5-10 feet that kinda feels like its coming from the front wheels and then goes away. At highway speeds and any other time the car drives perfect. Any ideas on what this is and whether or not to be concerned? It seems to only do it on my first take off after sitting. Thanks

That "first takeoff" stutter is actually normal, thankfully. :) Around 9mph or so the abs system tests itself by doing a quick pulse.
