Have not experienced the "hoot" but have experienced the hiccup. Took my MKC to the dealer this week (first service appointment) and mentioned this issue. Left it for the day; after driving the vehicle, both the technician and the service manager confirmed what I had reported.
RocMkc, any update on this TSB? My dealer says there is nothing available.Have not experienced the "hoot" but have experienced the hiccup.

They informed me there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) out on this; it focuses, I believe, on replacing or modifying the torque converter in the transmission. They are ordering the applicable parts and will call me to bring the car back in to have this work done (they were hoping this would be next week).
Don't know the TSB number, but if/when I get it I'll post it back here on the forum.

I often get this hiccup, and particularly it occurs when I press the S mode from D. It also often redlines when shifting to S from D, and I either need to take my foot off the gas or shift back to D in order to shift gears, or clear to "stuck" gear.
I complained about this to the dealer and their response was that "you're never supposed to switch from D to S when driving", Really? So I'm supposed to stop, switch to S, then continue driving? That is absurd. No way this is the case.
Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this issue? Much appreciated.
Similar experience here. Got my MKC back last week after they applied the transmission TSB fix --- it's shifting much better now and I seem to be getting a little better gas mileage, too.I just got mine back from both of those same items. The MKC shifts incredible now and the gas mileage is way better. The seats warm up quicker and get much hotter. Too bad this had to take 8 months of owernship to get Lincoln to believe there was a real issue with both items.
My car has been at the dealer for 3 days, finally picking it up tomorrow morning, I will see if the number is on the work order. The torque converter was replaced, and heated seats addressed. Will report back.Kevin, shirt or Roc:
Could one of you tell the TSB number for the torque converter clutch issue? I don't use sport mode that often, but when I do, I can red line in either 1 or 2nd gear! I then can use the paddle shifters to change gears, but it should be automatic. You 3 seem to have had a positive outcome.
