trans stinks-it really does.

Hello All,
This is my 3rd post. Car now has 2600 miles on it and still this transmission has not 'broke in'.
Latest issue is this trans not going into 3rd gear and the engine freewheeling.
When it did after a few seconds we were treated to a burnt clutch smell for the next 1/2 hour. I mean this thing really stunk!
At this point my wife(its her car) is telling me to drive this thing over to the Ford store and drop it off. Resort Ford-Hot Springs National Park.
"Well Honey its been there twice already and theres nothing wrong" is my answer.
So Ford if you are reading this please come up with a fix for this transmission before we get killed in this thing pulling out into traffic.
I have absolutely no confidence in this car.
