2019 Nautilus Transmission problems

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having issues with their Nautilus transmission ? I have several things going on with mine:

 

1. All gear shifts up to just under 40mph are VERY harsh, clunky

2. 3 times now when going from R to D the trans feels like it's going to just fall out onto the road ! Very loud 'clunk'

3. Going uphill (as we've noticed) around 70-75 mph feels like engine (trans ?) is 'missing' ....a pronounced 'stuttering' effect... sluggish feeling

 

I have had a Transmission 'flash' update that was supposed to correct some of these issues but all problems remain.

 

Anyone else have similar experiences ?

Ok, so those with transmission issues, have you been made whole by Ford/Lincoln or have you sold, walked away etc,

 

Mine is in for the 3rd time for same issues. Next time I’ll file a lemon complaint. 
 

Ford guy... happy with Explorer, Edge... thought I’d upgrade to Lincoln..., so far not happy At ALL...

Just as a reference, I have a 2019 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve with Tech package , took delivery in Jan. 2019.  Now has 18,000 miles and no transmission problems, In fact the car has been trouble free for over the year I have owned it. Love this vehicle.

 

Sorry to hear of your problems.

Thanks DeeCee. Yes, I've read of many happy Nautilus owners with no issues.

 

Just talked to my dealership service mgr. They verified the newest trans update was applied (last visit) and cannot replicate any of my issues... (as they could not on visit 1 or 2).

 

So what is my recourse ? Get legal help ? The problems will all still exist so feeling hopeless at this point.

Try another dealer first.  All dealers are not created equal.

Svc Mgr texted today that they have been able to replicate the glitch (THUNK !) going from P to D or R to D.... they are replacing something or other to 'combat the issue'.... not a real promising, warm / fuzzy phrase but we'll see.
