Yes, I face juddering issue at times due to low torque nature of this 998cc k10 petrol engine. I shift back to neutral and Drive mode again when juddering happens and this solved the issue instantly. And during steep inclines I use Manual mode, so that I can cruise smoothly. I bought my Celerio AMT in March 2015 and except for that juddering issue, I did not face anything else. And Diesel AMT users shouldn't face any juddering issues because of high low end torque of the diesels.
The cost to replace an AMT unit is 1.30 lakh. Which is still cheaper to repair than any TC,CVT or DSG gearbox. The things that can go wrong in an AMT Gearbox is the clutch and gear actuators. The AMT unit(TCU) should last the lifetime of the car. It is too early to comment on the reliablility of an AMT gearbox, we need to wait and see.
