I'd like to escalate this with your Customer Service Manager; please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer info. When do you notice this happening most?

Does it only occur when cruise control is on? By the way, I just noticed your PM and will respond as soon as possible.

I just shrug it off. Not the right answer, I know.
I'm here if you'd like this to be sent to your Customer Service Manager. All you need to do is PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer info (which I believe is Crown Ford); we'll review the details.

Glad I didn't - the torque converted could've exploded and I would've had much bigger problems....
Whoa; did it damage anything else? This is a good example of why getting your ride checked sooner, rather than later, is so important; thanks for sharing.

Take it easy out there,
