5 SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION IN 2005 FORD EXPLORER 4X4 EDDIE BAUER, SLIPS/FAILS TO CHANGE GEARS USUALLY EITHER AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS (PASSING SLOWER VEHICLES, UPHILL DOWNSHIFTING) AND ALSO HAS A SEVERE DELAY IN ENGAGING IN REVERSE (3-5 SECONDS) I AM CONCERNED THAT THESE TWO ISSUES COULD RESULT IN A SEVERE OR DEADLY ACCIDENT. THIS PROBLEM IS WIDE SPREAD ACCORDING TO MY RESEARCH, USUALLY RESULTING IN FORD DEALER NOT REPAIRING THE PROBLEM UNDER WARRANTY. I HAVE CHILDREN IN THE VEHICLE OFTEN AND FEEL THAT WHEN THE TRANSMISSION "CAN'T FIND THE GEAR" , ANOTHER VEHICLE COULD STRIKE MINE. VEHICLE HAS LESS THAN 35,000 MILES .
