Shifting felt erratic and not much power. They hooked the car up to the computer and found nothing wrong. Said the trans was still learning my driving habits. I don't buy it, I told them. My habits haven't changed in 1800 miles. But the car did feel better...for one week. Then the grinding started again.

I explained to the service manager that I've read about this problem, and that they must be aware of it. He said he is aware, but doesn't know if Ford has a fix yet. That was good to hear...NOT! Instead of re-programimg, this time it may go out to a trans guy. I'll let you know how that works.
Always remember, for whatever it's worth, the warranty on a manufacturer's defect never ends.
