Very few times have I noted the "gear hunting"... maybe 2 or 3 times?

That annoying noise (either the blender or the far less frequent "washers clanging") is just that... I've found gear shifts, noise or not, to be very smooth... since 12B37, the rough shifting from idle has pretty much gone away...

I do worry that prior to 12B37, the DCT's gears have metal shavings as prior to 12B37 the roughness and other issues did creep in after ~500 miles or so... I should look to see if one can check the fluid -- if shavings exist then I can mention that when going in for an oil change... there should be no metal shavings in with the fluid...
A fan of Ford, Freedom, Duncan Yo-Yos (but not Duncan Hines confectionary), and Strattera...
