Complaint - Power Train

MY TRANSMISSION WAS SHIFTING OUT OF 6TH GEAR INTO 1ST GEAR. THIS WAS UPDATED BY A COMPUTER FIX THAT KEEPS IT FROM SHIFTING TO 1ST GEAR BUT INTO 5TH INSTEAD. FORD HAS A CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM 16N02 THAT ADDRESSES THE SAME PROBLEMS I AM HAVING AND A FIX FOR IT. MY TRUCK WAS BUILT AT THE PLANT INDICATED, IN THE TIME FRAME INDICATED AND GIVES THE ENGINE CODES AS INDICATED BY THE BULLETIN. I HAVE CONTACTED THEM ABOUT IT AND DESPITE ALL THESE FINDINGS AM BEING TOLD THAT IT IS NOT THEIR PROBLEM TO FIX. MY MILEAGE IS BELOW THE 150K THRESHOLD THAT IS SET FOR THIS WARRANTY EXTENSION ON THE LEAD FRAME PROBLEM. THEIR FIX TO STOP IT FROM SHIFTING TO 1ST GEAR REDUCES THE CHANCE FOR A MAJOR ACCIDENT BUT THEIR REFUSAL TO FIX THE PROBLEM IN THE LEAD FRAME STILL LEAVES THIS AS A SAFETY ISSUE. A DOWN SHIFT AT SPEED TO 5TH GEAR STILL CAUSES AN UNINDICATED AND UNCONTROLLED SLOW DOWN OF MY TRUCK, THE LOSS OF SPEEDOMETER IS ALSO APPARENTLY CAUSING SOME PROBLEM WITH THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG WHEN THIS OCCURS AS I MA GETTING A MESSAGE TO REMOVE OBJECTS FROM THE PASSENGER SEAT WHEN THIS OCCURS. MY LOCAL FORD SHOP WILL NOT TRY TO WARRANTY THIS PROBLEM, I HAVE MADE 2 DIFFERENT CONTACTS AT FORD CONCERNING THIS AND THEY ALL SAY IT IS NOT ONE THEY HAVE MARKED FOR HAVING THIS PROBLEM. I CAN'T HELP THAT IT IS NOT ONE THEY THOUGHT MIGHT BE AFFECTED, I CAN ONLY SAY THAT IT HAS BEEN AND CAN'T GET IT REPAIRED BY THEM.
