Drivetrain shudders

When i start out, first thing in the morning. I get a drive train shudder like when posi clutch discs start binding or sticking. 07 mada, 4whl drive, mobil 1 diff fluid. Nm-s in trans and transfer case. 3000 miles on fluids in diffs and trans. Brakes have 3k on them as well. Shudder goes away when car is warm, or after driving a few miles. No leaks anywhere.
Wheel bearings? - doesn't pull, no decrease in mileage or acceleration.
Cv joints? - no difference noticed when turning.
2 whl, auto, 4 hi, and 4 low all work as advertised.

What does a ford fusion have to do with shudders, other than the thought of having a ford gives me the shudders of revulsion. This is a real car forum, not a clunker toy car forum!

sounds like a tranny thing. just speculating, when tempts are down, the trany pump is having a hard time pumping fluids. as it warms up, problem goes away. Or mabe your torque converter is acting up.
my advise is to seek your dealership help. just hope you can get there with the problem still happening so you can show it to them.
