I have a Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer with a V8 and it has 19,200 miles on it and we have had nothing but problems with the transmission since the 2,500 mile mark. Previously, the vehicle lunged forward on take off and stopping. Now it lunges or bucks as if someone hit you from behind. I have had the car to the dealership 5-6 times and no fix yet! Ford has issued a TSB for this type of problem unfortunately it doesn't fix the problem. It has undergone reprogramming to the PCM and other modules without success and each time the dealer felt they had "fixed" the problem by reprogramming the computer, but the problem is still there. I talked to Ford as well as the service department who talked directly with Ford technicians and we have been told the slips and bangs are normal. Apparently Ford believes that it's normal to feel like you are being rear-ended every time you come to a stop as the tranmission slips and bangs. Last weekend in stop/go traffic and numerous bumps in the back, the transmission would not shift out of low gear and we had to drive over 100 miles at 4500 rpms. Horrible performance.
