How many miles have you put on your car since the transmission work was done?

There is no reason why the mileage should change significantly (except for differences in the gasoline).

Well it started again this weekend, the shuddering, the hesitation, the jerky shifts... Everything I hate about this car is back in full force. Ugh... Time to go back to ford with this and possibly get a lawyer depending how they respond.

After having a lof of issues the dealer bought my 3 months old 2012 with 3k km on the odometer back by exactly same price that I paid for and I agreed to get a brand new 2012 same spec and color with a few more options for $1000.00 bucks difference. I will be taking delivery of the new one Tuesday. I will post the differences and the whole story after I pick up the new one. Kudos to my dealer.

Why not try a standard to completely avoid the grinding issue? That's what I would do personally...

Why do you sound like the dealer?.
Ford must fix this tranny or else they can file chapter seven.......cause I do smell a class action suit.
I do not care about ford. I do care about the poor folks who work there.
Put the conventional tranny back in and make us happy, As of right now ..Ford is dead..surely dead.!
And the even harder part of this is " they dont care"

Again I'll ask the question - what's the bottom line on this issue - will the grinding ruin the transmission at some point?, has this occurred?, what's the cost of a "clutch job" after warrenty expiration. My TI had the grinding steadily worse for a year at which time I had the clutches replaced - so far so good after 2 momths on new clutches (totally smooth shifting with no milage loss).

Realistically Ford is not going to buy everyone's car back and I don't know about replacing transmisions with regular ones(sounds unlikely). What might occur is for Ford to extend trans warrenties to 7 or 10 yrs - '"Focusing" our attention on that might return some benefit.

Note to Ford customer service: Thought it's nice to see you logging info on this issue - I think by now Ford has more than enough to go on and customers expect some solid info on how Ford will proceed in relation to it.

That's what I did. To be fair, though, I would have bought a manual even if the DCT never had a hiccup.
