It makes me really happy your shifting is smooth now, danyall2010; Iím confident your dealer will continue to take care of you.

I want to re-escalate your concern, gostinger. Drop me a line via PM with your current mileage so I can do that.

OPsDad,

Welcome to the forum! I can help by sending this over to your regional customer service manager. Please send me a PM with your full name, VIN, best daytime phone number, mileage, and dealer name/state.

That's not possible. You have a 2013. All problems have been fixed.

All kidding aside, good luck getting the problem rectified.

You better take it back to the dealership now and start saving your documentation.... you'll need it if it comes down to filing a lemon law claim.

I hope you don't have to go that route, but Ford dealerships have a very poor track record fixing these transmissions, so you might as well be prepared.

Transmission too hot Press Brake <<<<< I like that one
Transmission overheating Stop safely

I have to factor in extra travel time just in case the car wants to rest and take a crap on the side of the road. All at below freezing temps .....
Does this happen in stop and go traffic?

If the transmission has been improved or not, with less 2013 cars on the street you would see less complaints.
+1. Roughly speaking there are over 300,000 2012 Foci on the road and at the most 100,000 2013s. For that reason alone you'll see fewer 2013 complaints. But the '13s hit the ground running with the latest hardware and software updates that have been trickled out to certain '12s so you'll see fewer complaints for that reason too.

But there have been several '13 owners on here that have complained of some of the same things as us '12 owners.

There's no need... my jimmy rustles every time my car shifts into 4th gear. A condition caused not by being built in 2011, but by being worked on by an incompetent dealership in 2012.

Say 'this has been fixed in the 2013 model' as much as you can, friend, because it won't be long before everyone knows how wrong you are.
