Facing shuddering issue on my 2021 Ecosport diesel while accelerating
Today on the smooth ECR I felt this same issue again for a fraction of a second. It felt like the engine was choking, post that I floored the car and it behaved normally.

Guys I faced a weird issue in my EcoSport twice, once last Saturday on my way to Hyderabad and the same issue today while on a drive to Mahabalipuram.
At roughly about 85-100kmph there was a heavy shudder while I was accelerating. This happened for hardly a second. When this happened for the first time last week (continuosly for about 3 accelerator inputs all for a second) about 100kms into my trip. The entire car vibrated with the front wheels feeling like they were bouncing.
When this happened for the first time both my dad and me thought it might be the road as we were crossing a part of the NH that was patched up(even though I felt the engine not accelerating despite me flooring it). Post that my car performed flawlessly for the entire trip ~1457kms. Post my return I covered about another 200kms in city traffic.
Today on the smooth ECR I felt this same issue again for a fraction of a second. It felt like the engine was choking, post that I floored the car and it behaved normally. No error codes on the MID. This time the feeling of vibration was less intense than the first time.
My 2021(March) EcoSport has run 26,250kms in 15 months. The Odo was 24.7k kms when I felt this first. No issues and no DPF warnings also till now. *Touchwood*
Took my car to Dhruvan Ford yesterday, they connected the laptop and checked for error codes which were none. They then checked the DPF and it had a soot level of 68%. They attributed this could be the cause for the issue I experienced and ran the DPF regen process via OBD port. Additionally there was also a software update which they updated.
All of this took about 3 hours and I got my car back at 12PM with everything billed free of cost. I need to use it again and see if I face the issue again. So as per the current design and working of the DPF Ford wants their BS6 diesel customers to take the car for a highway run every week .
*Fingers crossed* I don’t face any issue again. I really love my EcoSport and don’t want this DPF to be the reason I sell her earlier than intended.
