Twice this week, while braking from about 30-40mph and then accelerating, the car didn't kick back into gear. It just stayed in neutral and the car revved....

...I have to bring the car in for that windshield wiper seal (or something like that) recall soon, so I'm going to ask them to take a look at the car. I got it back in late June of 2011, so it's just a bit over a year old. I had Ford apply the transmission update last fall or so (not sure when it was done). Other than that, it hasn't been back at a dealership...
I recommend making an appointment as soon as possible. In addition, please send me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer information by PM; I'll let your Customer Service Manager know about this.

Hey guys -

Where did you get this information from?

I'm at 4100 miles, and the shuddering has all but ceased...So I have got my confidence level up from 75% to 99% in my new ride. Thanks to all here who have posted the wonderfully infomative info on here. I hope to be a help as well!
Thanks for the update! I think I've responded to this two other times already; once in another forum and once by PM! LOL Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Have a good Wednesday,
