V6/ 6spd ERRATIC VIBRATION

My 2014 V6/6spd with 12k miles has an erratic vibration , it happens on deceleration only (foot off the pedal) , seems it does it in 3rd and 5th gear and at times on 2od gear, my concern is that when I down shift there are no issues, only an erratic vibration that comes and goes. Any here with some insight

Is it around 2500 to 3500 RPM?

Yes - normal. They all do it. It is a little disconcerting at first but you will get used to it.

you'll notice it only happens after you get above 3500 rpms then when you lower rpms to 2500 you'll get it (all gears) what they said "normal" yep it sux.

Yes, but if you go to a single mass wheel ( like I was forced to - long story) you'll have pretty bad gear lash at idle. I think I'd rather have the vibration. I'm going to try the Royal Purple trans fluid to see if that will quiet it down, or up the idle RPM's, hope one of those works.

I have heard people say getting the aluminum 1 piece driveshaft helps. Is this no longer the case?

My transmission "rattles" at idle. I'm told it's the single mass wheel not having the dampening properties of the duel mass wheel. So it " backlashes" back to the trans with any rpm changes- like when the a/c kicks on and off...

Even here you can read reviews from people who purchased the new driveshaft and said it helped with this vibration:

Can't believe this is still an issue on new cars and even more surprised at how much we (until I moved over to a auto in 2013) have just resigned to this being "how it is".

The fun of a Mustang is that it's a bit crude and unrefined here and there. It's built tough and simple, and gives the illusion of a muscle car without actually being one. I just chalk up things like this to its character. Give enough feedback and vibration and noise to make it feel nostalgic without actually being unsafe to drive.

Go drive a "classic" someday. Noisy, poor brakes, poor suspension, twitchy throttle, no safety anything...

The 2015, though, is very "Euro" in that all of that is smoothed out and it's basically a Ford IS350 with two doors. It drives very ... "nice". *sigh*

I see your point and agree, but I apply that thinking to things like the solid rear.
