I got some news to report:
They claimed I have the latest updates and did not do anything. They tested the car and said it was the smoothest transmission they tested. I asked to show me proof it was the lastest update/software, but they could not give it to me since the computer is not set up to the printer. I was talking to the shop foreman during the visit.
However, they attempted to get Ford Engineering on the phone to see what else they can do. I should get a call on Monday or Tuesday. Because I still have the grinding noise, they may be investigating the clutches on the car. The car is at about 6,700 miles and it is well past it's break in period. I have the car in my possession
The dealer I went to had folks that were appreciative of my past business and they wanted to make sure that I was happy, but I still have some questions.
In any event, I will see what will come of Ford Engineering next week.
