Perhaps. I got a call from Ford Custom care yesterday with some advice on how to make my car shift from 1st to 2nd without grinding. She told me engineering told her to have me drive it in sport mode and much harder. They claim this will make it so I can't hear it, thus problem fixed! Seriously! I asked her if engineering was aware that the car did not go into high gear while in sport mode? She said she did not know that. I said yeah that was a stupid suggestion! They actually said it was my fault because I didn't drive it hard enough!
