Bought 2011 V6 Convertible Premium from No. In. dealer in April of 2010. one of first on market,(turns out it was a demo, but that is another story) all black, beautiful car. Paid $995.00 extra for six speed trans. You would think a 75 year old would know better than buy a first year anything!
Now the bad news.
Let car sit in garage a couple days. Start engine shift into reverse, nothing, a few seconds later car backs out of garage. similar ro problems of #123.
Like # 117 car shifts when it feels like it, seldom the same.Has the worst case of driveline slack/backlash I have ever seen on any car, especially one with a $33,000 window sticker.
Local Ford dealer (not the one that unloaded the car on us) had car for 8 days and couldn't find a problem.
As a warning to future buyers, this car has no sparetire! Just a made in CHINA plug into lighter air pumpwith some gummy substance in it. Have anything but a puncture and you are screwed, roadside service will only put on spare, where you are needing a rollback. I tried to buy a spare from Ford but they ignored me.
I would sign off by saying I doubt very much if a bunch of overpaid engrs. at givr a damn what an old man in In. has to say about anything.
Thank You and happy motoring!!

Check TSB 11-11-11 for cars built before 12/20/2010. It's for the delayed engagement & also 2-3 & 4-5 upshift problems and requires replacement of 3 shift solenoids plus some other parts. It also affects some F-150s.
Unfortunately, the required parts are not available anywhere in the Ford system as of mid-Dec 2011. The dealership is "referred to vendor" but nobody can tell us when the parts will be available.
Yes, I too am sick of the Ford warranty process! I never ever thought I would say this, but I wish I had bought a Hyundai! That's truly sad!

I think he's spilled some kind of nasty carbonated beverage on his shifting console.
Beer or coke will mess them up. Generally, the shop will have to quickly replace the whole shift selecting mechanism and not have to mess with the transmission insides. It's easier to replace the whole assembly rather than trying to find the corrupted component. I know this much from experience.
That's the reward we get for having beverage holders located right next to that key piece of equipment.

I have a 2002 Ford Mustang v6 automatic, and I have been experiencing surging. My car chugs a little when I turn her on, and then is fine until about 30-45 mph she starts to surge. Once I get to 50 mph the surging ceases. What confuses me is that it does not surge every time I am around 30-45 mph, only when I am trying to hold a steady speed, not if I am purely accelerating (like getting on the freeway).

I am having the same problems on my 2011 mustang V6 coupe.
I noticed that if I deactivate the Traction control it seems to shift better
Also, if I drive aggressively the shifting seems tighter.
I'm now getting slipping when I punch it a little from a dead stop.(not good)
You mentioned a Chip to correct your problems. What chip were you
referring to? Is it a tuning chip?
Let me me know what it is, I might want to try it if Ford can't fix this problem.

Mine does the same thing once awhile. I noticed if I turn the traction control button off it stops and drives like normal. I think I might have it replaced? The light doesn't come on anymore, does yours?
