New vehicle. 1st road trip from Texas to Florida. Only 2338 miles and transmission warning. Really? A new vehicle should not start having problems this early.

I have only had this car for 2 months and the transmission was slipping and now all of a sudden it's saying transmission fault service. now going to take it to the dealership this week and see why is it doing this

Update from Nov 21, 2018: Dealer inspected the transmission and found the device clutches we're welded together. This is caused by excessive heat in the transmission. No other indications led to this. And the top speed the vehicle reached was 72mph during it's lifespan. Not sure why it overheated and didn't throw any other errors. Furthermore the transmission was replaced under manufacturers warranty. Thank you Ford.
