Ford, you guys get this, you build transmission better then anyone on the plant, period
- this is a little scary when you go to pass on the highway, pull out quick at a light etc, it really plays with your confidence in driving. I have 1600 miles, about 1200 are all stop and go highway traffic. I really love this car, the fit and finish, MySync, the look, but I'm really bummed on hearing this response. Can you guys confirm at this point, Ford is not addressing the issue, but stating to let things "wear" in. That is just puzzling no? Has anyone on this thread with an SEL or the 6spd transmission seen things get better?
LOL what?? I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but I really hope you are. Ford has made transmissions in the past and they've been horrible...but the transmission in this car isn't even made by Ford...it's made by GetRag, a German manufacturer that *does*, in fact, make the best transmissions on the planet. The problem is that Ford handled the programming of the computers in the car...which is where this issue is coming from.
It's not a byproduct of a dual-clutch transmission...it's a byproduct of *THIS* dual-clutch transmission. Most-likely it is software.
