If the car shudders all the time stopping it could be a rotor out of round sometime this happens with new rotors, they should replace them under warranty. But if it is more like abs shudder then they could have damaged a sensor at one of the wheels, the sensors are used for abs and traction control.

I it is usually the brake shoe adjusters at the rear.
Auto adjust type:
To adjust them you can hold your foot hard down on the brake pedal and wrech up the park brake lever a few times
Drums off and wind the adjuster cog to increase the diametre of the shoes, don't get carried away thow or the drum wont go back on

Testimonial: "Thank you"
well the abs and traction control lights go on when the wheel speed sensor circuit doesn't get a signal, or gets an erroneous signal compared to the other 3 wheel speed sensors. The brake light might be low fluid, or a more serious brake problem.

Hi, these systems are all linked together. Most commonly, one of the wheel speed sensors is not reading or is reading incorrectly. This can also occur on slippery surfaces where one or more wheel slides enough to cause the sensor to drop the signal, but not enough to meet criteria for an abs or esp episode. If the light comes back every time you turn on the ignition, there is a deeper problem.
The system has detected a fault in the electronic stability program - brake assist system. You have an electrical connection at the rear wheels secured to the inside of the brake area and are viewable from under the vehicle. It is a small wire harness running to each wheel. Grab the connector and wiggle it around, and make sure they are tight. Due to the connector being mounted low to the ground, sometimes they become dirty or corroded, not making contact. Do this on both sides and see if the lights turn off.
If the light does not turn off, you have to replace dynamics sensor, which is mounted UNDERNEATH the center console in the car. There is a "lost communication to dynamics sensor" and "low voltage to dynamics sensor supply"..

When the Engine Control Module encounters problems, it will also disable the traction control system. Scanned the ECM to know fault codes stored there, repairing this codes and clearing the codes will turn off the Traction indicator and allows the traction control to work once again.
If the Traction Control light is coming on, the traction control is activating and can cause a jerking problem. Nothing last the life of the vehicle, however the timing chain should not need to be changed at 49,000 miles. If it does, I would have them do it under warranty. See if you can get the codes and send them to me. That way we can get a better ideal of what is going on. Could you please tell me what these codes stand for?
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
