Thanks all for the feedback so far!
…so I drive country roads for 10 minutes sin the morning very easy at 50ish and then hit an expressway. When in town the car sites for 10-20 minute then back in. I can see the first 2-3 shift but this should not occur after 30 shifts. I do have the 3.2L and know this is mated with the escape transmission, so at first thought maybe its just the engine being stronger, but then the transmission should be in sync (especially since it is supposed to have added learning transmission with some smarts behind it.
**Update - So today I tried sport mode (1st time actually), nothing crazy just accelerate to half throttle let off and normal easy turns around some corners and stop and start. It is way noticeable in this mode. I actually don't drive in S in any car, except may very steep mountains on vacation (smokey mountains) and then only if I feel a car is struggling in drive. I have concerns since I found shifts very late and even to 5K RMP here. Often it did not shift and held a high RMP, so I backed down (this was gentle acceleration too.) Paddles did not seem to work either or where delayed. I have now scheduled to take in again TUE to dealer for another round…will report how this goes.
