The vehicle has demonstrated this issue early in its life and was into the dealership for the problem. They refused to say it was a design issue although we know others who have same gripe. They shared the "fix" cost when I complained but refused to admit it was a FORD issue. The symptoms have returned now at 102K miles and I'm taking it to a local tranny repair shop for evaluation. Ford should step up here but refuses to.
