Well the good news (for me) my dealer resolved the issue on my 2014 Ford Focus on the fifth transmission plate replacement, four done under warranty and the fifth under extended warranty. Ford Canada had given up, decline any further assistance when I asked what they were going to do to resolve..my dealer didn't give up!! My symptom was as you pulled away from a stop, the shuddering, which just got worse. Would replace ever 20,000kms...the last replacement (5th) was 30,000kms ago, what was done different there, the hanger bearings replaced. Just yesterday, the transmission as smooth as, basically like my 2010 Escape Hybrid, that smooth!! Having a great dealer team, who listen, understand, empathy, think outside of the normal...priceless!!
