I get it sometimes to well decelerating. Is yours manual? I thought it might be the vibration off the driveshaft at certain speeds. It's only for a split second, then evens out. What are you experiencing?

Yes it is a 6 speed. And its just like what yours is doing. It only happens for a few seconds then goes away. I have ford looking at it right now so ive got my fingers crossed that they will do something to fix it. Ive read that ford has told a lot of people that this is normal but ive driven alot of high performance vehicles and this isnt at all normal.

Is the vibration mostly in the shifter? What I mean is, can you really feel it otherwise?

I'm thinking you're just feeling the awesomeness (not) of the dual-mass flywheel. For some reason, Ford had the bright idea to put it in the V6 models. It has weights that move with engine rpm and on decel, especially around 3k rpms they cause a vibration and by about 2500rpms it should disappear. It's normal.

I have the same issue with my 2010 v6 :/ If someone knows how to possibly correct this then do tell please! It is so annoying to deal with.

I feel i through the entire car. Ford made a bad choice on this one then
So, it is the flywheel? Can you feel it at the rpms I specified, especially through the gear shifter (just holding it while rpms descend)?

You may have a bad motor/trans mount or something is rubbing making it worse. You shouldn't feel it THAT bad. I never really noticed it until I held onto the shifter while in decel.

Well... run it like you meant it and save up for an aluminum flywheel. If you ever wanted to add a procharger or turbo, you'd need one anyway. The DM flywheels do break at higher horsepower levels.

I will say i really missed my baby while they had it. Im so happy she is home
I know the feeling. The day I got my car I found a paint chip on the bumper where it looked like Ford scraped it installing the grill. They had it for 3 days while a new bumper was painted and installed.

Is this decell vibration only on the manual transmissions? I do not experience it at all (2011 V6 with almost 36,000 miles). However, I have the automatic transmission.

Only anoying thing I get is the "clunk" every once in awhile when crawling through 5:00 traffic.
