Mine's always worked great (I think?) I think it downshifts a little too aggressively when helping slow the trailer resulting in RPM's I'm uncomfortable with but that's all I've noticed.

What was the problem that they issued a fix for?

I believe the EcoBoost V6 down-shifting points are different than the V8 points. Have to admit it does the job of downshifting, but the V8's have the edge over them on the downshifting.. Did great in the Rockies a few years ago.

Never had an issue with the trans shifting..... so far.

BuddyRay, I will honk as we go around Atlanta as we will be heading to the Clearwater area (home base), from here in Hiawassee GA (summer seasonal spot)!!!
Hope to beat that tropical storm that is in the Atlantic, may not be a problem....

I agree with the only issue being harsh downshifts. Other then that I love my F150!
