Transmission shifts hard into lower gears, this is worse on a cold start. In addition, on colder days it slams into gear between 2nd and 3rd on upshift and downshift. The plastic trim around the door handles pulls up when the door is pulled shut. It does not come completely off the handle, but it moves. The Driver Information System reported a bad SD card for the GPS system. GPS fails to function. Dealer found that the SD slot is bad, and part is on indefinite back order.

I have been complaining about hard shifts with the transmission in the lower gears. The technician verified that it was shifting harshly, however they determined that once the transmission warmed up the shifting was normal. Ford claims that this was normal for my car to have harsh shift hesitation on a cold transmission and there is nothing they can do about it. NO REPAIR PERFORMED

Solenoid in transmission was replaced due to hard shifting conditions from park to reverse and hard up/down shifts from 3rd to 4th gear. TSB is available, the dealer told me more than once there was nothing wrong until I searched and found the TSB myself, they then agreed to perform repair. But quirks now returning two months later.
