Hi Karyn,

I would say that your son has overheated and worn the clutch, and now you have "clutch shudder".

Very common to many cars.

Would require transmission removal for repair, would recommend a new flywheel and clutch assembly.

I would also not use an X-Trail for 4WD, not aren't up to the rigors of real 4 wheel driving.

They are a good commuter for the city, people mover etc.
