Excuse the "French", but the useless bleepin' "Service Adviser" should know better than to use the "Recall" word on anything where it doesn't apply!
I went through this almost a half a year ago(Jan-March), on the cool mornings when the temps were -20 it would shift like a dream, however after driving 45 minutes or so it would "studder" between the first and second shift. They ended up replacing the clutch and seal and that ended that one.It sounds like you're describing my '14 Focus EXACTLY. Behaves fine in the mornings but if I drive it for an extended amount of time the shuddering begins, mostly between first and second gears and horrible in stop and go traffic. Please post here how things go on Friday. I'm very interested to know as my car is due to be serviced soon
Hi Sliderturk99,Im currently at my the dealership for my free state inspection and the service advisor is like so your here for the recall...WHAT RECALL!! tell me it's the transmission and I'm gonna scream where where you 6 month ago when I was complaining...umm yah his came out 3 weeks ago. So the car is going back Oct 6 since they are understaffed as always and I got a family function later in the day so I can't leave it car....Will update this thread after the update
I'm on whidbey and I've had all my work done in Burlington. Billy is awesome guy. They talk to u like a human being. U can tell they empathize a bit with the crap that happens to these dct's. All of em are good guys.Anyone can recommend me a Ford Service center or rep around the Seattle/Tacoma area that I should go get the FSA done and also have them check out the shuddering problems. My current service center at Renton does a very minimal job and they did not even tell me that I had the recall when I went in for tire rotation last week.
Thanks for the shout out! The best way to choose a dealership is through asking other customers and checking out the dealers themselves. I don't work directly with them, so I wouldn't be able to point to any specific one. Dealers are searchable by ZIP code here.Try private messaging Meagan, the FordService rep who has a post listed on this page, and ask her for advice on where to go or who she recommends to contact?
this is a recurring story as you read all the posts here. At one time, we all discussed here that this might be limited to a small percent of production but the back-orders and delays everywhere make me think its more widespread.My local dealer is booked till the end of October. Sheesh!
I don't believe there's a back order or delay for 15B22(the op's topic). I called today and have an appointment for Monday.this is a recurring story as you read all the posts here.

Exactly, it's an update To the tcm software. Which doesn't effect the performance of the transmission. Though some may get the latest trans update at the same time or a battery disconnect may cause the trans learner process to restart.15B22 is software - nothing to be "back ordered" about it.
Had it done on my last oil change, now 500 miles into it and found nothing bad about the update.
