Complaint - Power Train

I WAS ACCELERATING FROM A STOP LIGHT, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE ENGINE SPEED INCREASED AND THE CAR SLOWED DOWN. AS THE CAR WAS SLOWING DOWN IN HEAVY TRAFFIC I ATTEMPTED TO ACCELERATE BUT ALL THAT HAPPENED IS THE ENGINE REVVED HIGHER. I WAS IN HEAVY 2 WAY TRAFFIC AND WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO NOTICE A TURN OFF INTO A PARKING LOT BEFORE THE CAR CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP. I PROCEEDED TO TRY THE CAR IN ALL GEARS BUT NO MOVEMENT OCCURRED. IT IS LIKE IT IS LIKE THE CAR IS STUCK IN NEUTRAL. I HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED TO A LOCAL GARAGE WHERE IT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THESE TRANSMISSIONS. I WAS TOLD THE SPLINES INSIDE THE TORQUE CONVERTER STRIP OUT AND FAILS TO SPIN THE SHAFT THAT SPINS THE FLUID PUMP. THIS IS A KNOW PROBLEM AND A RECALL WAS ISSUED (11S25) FOR FORD FREESTAR USING THE SAME TRANSMISSION. I CALLED FORD AND WAS TOLD THIS CAR DOES NOT FALL UNDER THE RECALL EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE SAME TRANSMISSION.
