All the time it feels like the shockers arnt working right its like a judder through the car but i didnt know if this was just because it was a convertible as this is the first one i have owned

The reason I asked is because my front axle on my all wheel drive Durango made it shudder. It sounded like the transmission was messing up. I thought it was the torque converter but about 100 or so miles later the axle broke. I guess sometimes you have to wait till it breaks

could be too many things for that description, perhaps an unbalanced, unevenly worn tire, bent rim, warped axle, if driving, do you feel it in the seat more, or steering wheel more, (in your seat/ass means it's originating from the rear of the car/steering wheel-dash board from the front).....let me know

When i drive the car if i look in the rear view mirror the back window shudders from side to side when u hit a bump so i thought it might be the back shockers its a strange feeling

is there a hard thump over bumps, non-flat surfaces? is it at all speeds, (and you seat indicates from the rear of the car), is that specific one front or rear wheel drive?

sounds like your dampers may be set to hard,that or a damage axle

This is probably just because it is a convertible, my C70 has quite a lot of cowl shake, and this is just normal in convertibles

another thing to check might be the engine mounts need replacing. if your car has a lot of miles, it could cause the shuddering when you are accelerating.
