Dry Transmission

I'm sure others have posted about this so I apologize in advance. Having said that though, I hated how my 2014 SE hatchback shifted. It's an automatic with what the dealer said was a dry transmission. Honestly it felt and sounded horrible from 1st to usually 3rd gear most times and felt like there was a drag or lull in the shifting. Recently when I was in for an oil change the people said there was an update for the transmission from Ford themselves. Now the car shifts way way way better than before. I wonder what the issue was to begin with, does anyone know why they weren't the greatest?

Moved to the MkIII TSB, REcall & Problems section where you can find LOTS to read.

General Tech Chat is for DIY repair advice so no info. there.
