2014 Escape
I purchased my 2014 Ford Escape a few months ago. There was one previous owner. I have noticed lately when the transmission changes gears it changes hard and is Maki g me feel like there is a transmission problem. Can anyone shed any light on this please?

I seem to recall another friend with a 2014 escape who also had issues with shifting. Apparently there were a few people complaining about it online. I think some even complained to Ford about it, but I don't really know if they got anywhere with it. Can't really help much more than that, bug a google search could probably turn up something on it.

How many miles on it? Checked the fluid level, color, smell? Maybe just needs new fluid?
