At present, Ford warranty service has denied further repair to this vehicle. The shifting problem that persists is slight and intermittent. It was nonexistent enroute to the most recent dealership presentation and the tech reported that his test drive determined the transmission was shifting properly.
We are left hoping the problem that is now gone, stays gone. The dealer has agreed, however, to complete the repair protocol if the shifting problem can be experienced in the future by their transmission tech.
