Car was not shifting properly. Sometimes there would be a "bang" when Shifting
car had not been running properly since 7500 miles . Each time the car was brought in (2x) I was told it was not broken or needed software updates. Finally the transmission was found to have broken parts and was rebuilt.

Car was shifting irregularly. Hard shifts in morning, felt like it would almost be stuck in gear then shift very hard to next gear. After reflash it's bad as it used to be. However it still does not feel right.
Just purchased car! While leaving one interstate and merging onto another, car suddenly felt as though driving over a washboard, but the pavement was smooth. Let up on gas, gradually sped up, and problem was gone. Don't think it's fixed.
Re previous "washboard" sensation - happened again on hwy interchange. Then car would not accelerate. Frightening. Dealer overhauled transmission. Won't know if this really eliminated the problem until it's on another road trip.
Severe driveline vibration at highway speeds (60-65 mph).rnDealer 'rephased' driveshaft but problem is not as severe but persists.rnReturned to dealer on Jan 3.
Severe driveline vibration at highway speeds (60-65 mph). Noted that it was most severe when starting out in cold, below 15F, temps. Located TSB on-line and took copy in with vehicle. Dealer ordered parts and installed one week later. Parts including driveshaft installed to fix vibration, per TSB.
Right front transmission shaft output oil seal leaking. Dealer states around $250 to fix it. Added fluid and will monitor for a week or so. Update: later fixed itself.

The transmission had to be rebuilt. The overdrive component came apart.
Transmission upshift from gear 2 to 3 is sometimes so harsh it snaps heads back, and could make me loose control of the vehicle if slippery, under hard accelleration. Under normal accelleration, the transmission shift hunts 2-3-2-3-2-3
Transfer case leak. Replaced gasket 2nd trip to get leaking transfer case fixed. Asked for another tech to work on my car. We'll see if it is actually fixed this time.
Tranny not shifting properly between 2-3 also not going into 6th gear on the highway at times.
Hard shifting in lower gears. Also, when using cruise control to resume to an approx speed of 45-50 mph, once speed hits target, RPM's stay high and engine whines for a longer than expected duration. At least 5-8 seconds
This is a fleet car. Many of our 2010 Escapes (all have 4 cylinder engines) are having transmission problems. This one had to be rebuilt and have a couple of clutches replaced. Of 5 employees I've talked to all have noticed problems.
PCM and transmission sensor replaced. Car refused to start.
DRIVER SIDE TRANSMISSION LEAK.
SHAFT, BUSHING AND SEAL REPLACED

Erratic 1-2 2-3 shift when cold
Transmission fluid leak found on left axle seal. Seal was replaced under powertrain warranty.
Transmission is toast. From the net this a common problem in 09 Escape. Short of completely replacing transmission and waiting for parts etc. the problem of crappy shifts (and I mean crappy) will remain. Don't want to be without it for the time needed.
This was a recall where they flashed the computer for the transmission.
With the replacement of the throttle gear box the mechanic had to set some codes that smoothed out the automatic gear shifting with the transmission

Transmission to axel seal leaking. Replaced with generic brand and it leaked again. Then replaced with Ford product and no leaks currently.

metal ring on drive boot had crack in it that was sending sensor bad read. Replaced ring.
Replaced bearings on either end of front right axle: transmission to wheel.
My RPM's were nearly 3000 in subzero weather for the first 15 minutes of driving. I wanted to know if this was weather related, or was my transmission telling me it was about to have problems. Service manager told me we needed to "reprogram PCM." It was a software update. It cost me $150. I was not happy. Free on computers. It led to my digital display being inaccurate for the next 1000 miles.
bad piston. caused by revving engine to high due to transmission failure.
the rear end differential needs to be replaced as the bearings are wearing out. Ford says that the replacement part costs $2200.00 / $3600 installed. None of the Escape forums list this kind of problem.

Had a transmission service (flush), same day service, approx $150 cdn. Done by dealer. Did not fix problem (transmission shudder, and miss).

The shifter cable "keeper" that attaches to the gear select shaft at the top of the transmission, broke, leaving the Escape in neutral. Sunday, so I made do with some keepers bought at Ace Hardware and some ingenuity. Still need to buy actual part.
