Complaint - Power Train

2009 FORD F-150 WITH AN AUTOMATIC SIX SPEED TRANSMISSION ROLLS BACKWARDS WHEN STOPPED ON A GRADE IF THE GEAR SELECTOR IS EITHER IN 2 OR 3. WAS ADVISED BY BOTH MY FORD DEALER AND FORD CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT THIS WAS "NORMAL". I HAVE NEVER OWNED A VEHICLE WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION THAT ROLLED BACKWARDS LIKE THE VEHICLE WAS IN NEUTRAL. SINCE FORD RECOMMENDS DRIVING IN "3 " WHEN ON GRADE, THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR ROLLING BACKWARDS AN CAUSING AN ACCIDENT AFTER STOPPING. I HAVE AN EMAIL FROM FORD'S CUSTOMER SERVICE STATING THAT THIS IS "NORMAL". IF FORD IS NOT GOING TO FIX THIS ISSUE, THEY SHOULD AT LEAST PROMINENTLY NOTE THE PROBLEM IN THEIR OWNERS MANUAL. I WAS NOT INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT, BUT WAS SHOCKED WHEN THIS FIRST HAPPENED. I WOULD NOT HAVE PURCHASED THE VEHICLE IF THIS WAS A KNOW PROBLEM.
