9000 0 Transmission replaced but didn't solve problem: slipping while going uphill, hard shifting. New transmission removed twice, replaced valve body, solenoid, and PCM, still didn't solve problem. Hav refused offer to replace trans again, want buyback. 
11000 0 I finally agreed to allow Ford to install yet another transmission. This one at least appears to have resolved the issue. 
18000 0 The transmission slammed into reverse. I have had and apparently continue to have problems with my transmission.
