Wow, can’t believe this is happening! I’m glad I found this out before I purchased the ST I’ve been drooling over. I have a 2017 Ruby Red Explorer Sport and had a appointment today to trade it in for an Atlas Blue ST. But after reading about the numerous ST’s having tranny issues I canceled my appointment. Anyone know if Ford has fix this tranny issue with the current STs on the dealer lots? I’m thinking of waiting for the 2021 model with hopes that all the bugs get fixed by then.

yes, make sure the built date is Jan 2020 or newer and you’ll be fine. I missed mine by a few months. But the service is amazing. The parts should be delivered tomorrow and I should have my ST back by the end of the week or sooner.

@SleeperST is right @SVTLX , everyone with build dates in 2020 have been really good as far as we can tell. my late march build has been flawless.

That sucks, I can’t believe it’s taken that long. We decided to hold off and wait for the 2021 ST. Our Sport has be great so waiting isn’t a problem.
Hope they fix your ST soon!
