Sounds that way to me, too. When I called to inquire about this I was told there is also an update the the TCM that affects the learning strategy.

I bought my '14 Focus SE brand new in 09/14 (according to VIN is was built in 03/14). After driving it about 15,000 miles the transmission shaking/hesitation/slipping issues began. It only begins shaking after I've been driving it for minimum of 45 minutes, but it's very noticeable after that when in stop and go traffic, or at low speeds (under 10 mph). I've schedule an appointment with the dealer to get it looked at this Friday, so we'll see how they handle it. The 15B22 update is applicable to my VIN, so they might apply that too.

About a week ago, I noticed some slight stuttering at low speeds (4<x<12 mph), and some minor hesitancy in acceleration between 20-25mph. The hesitancy was more pronounced when I'm entering an on-ramp to get on the freeway. And today, I notice that there's an alert out for my VIN for this FSA. Issues at approximately 16.5k miles (brand new car with similar purchase and build date (I think) as NashFocus14).

I haven't received any Check Engine or other warning lights. I'm also not sure if my experience is related at all to what the FSA would address.

Timing is likely a coincidence, but I'm unsure on how to proceed based on feedback of the posts here.

EDIT: I saw the alert after I had logged into my Ford Owners account (nothing via USPS, so far).

Hi guys,

I'll be happy to look at some options from my end. Just PM me your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location.

The car wouldn't go into gear at all. I shut it off, and started it back up. Same error. Car would go into gear, but would not upshift until close to redline. Had it towed to the dealer and now waiting to see what's next. Hopefully it's just a software problem having to do with the 15B22 recall.
same thing has recently happened to my focus I connected my scan tool I got 3 different codes. what ended up being the problem

Thanks! I can send my info once I get home, but I'd be wary of applying any updates based on some of the responses to this thread :/ (At least until we get some positive results)

Could be your TCM has failed and won't shift out of first gear. 15B22 is intended to warn you that a problem like this is coming.

I won't be able to drive mine much for the next few weeks - could you please keep us updated on how the "learning" process progresses? Thanks.
