I've convinced my parents to break their ties to Chrysler after receiving a few bad Chrysler vehicles and they will most likely be buying an Edge or an Escape ... I'd hate for them to get one with a bad transmission.
It seemed to be more wide spread about 4-5 years ago, and the recall and reflash cured most of the speed "flare" issues with them. My wife has had her 2012 Escape for over a year (with 24k on it now) and the 6F in that has been (knock on wood), flawless. I did talk with my service manager (who has been very open and honest in the past with me) about past concerns with this tranny, and she assured me that Ford has "finally got it right" with the 2011 up models...... take that for what its worth. LOL
