I have the extended warranty and I know at my power level the clutches are getting smoked at times so I am going to wait as long as I can and see how bad it gets. It is not the transmission mechanics or the clutches that are bad per-se, but the programming of the transmission shifts.

Ford needs to fire that idiot engineer who came up with that whole "torque hole filling" technique and let these transmissions shift like the automated manual transmissions they are. If people do not like a manual-like shift, then offer a regular automatic for those ies who like a slush-box (though many new autos shift nice and firm which is good).
